So for something like this to happen is unheard of....
This is the closest Wal-Mart to us. I don't shop there, like ever, unless I have some Amish who want to go. They are not just shutting down for a few hours....
From 2 PM on Friday afternoon to 6 AM on Sunday, meaning they are losing the entire afternoon and evening on Friday and all day on Saturday. The sales they are losing are enormous. Good news for the Meijer across the street as shoppers show up at Wal-Mart and are turned away, many will just cross the road and shop at the competition. The reason has something to do with the Chinese bioweapon Covid-19 and I assume a certain threshold of employees getting positive tests or something.
What struck me as odd is that Wal-Mart is infamous for a customer base that is obese and unhealthy under the best of circumstances. There is a reason there is a whole genre of photos and memes devoted to the people of Wal-Mart.
|At least she will be safe from coronavirus!|
If Wal-Mart really wants to protect the health of their customers, might I suggest they stop carrying soft drinks and candy? That would do far more for the average Wal-Mart shopper than spritzing the entire store with disinfectant.
These are the news stories that apparently make sense to a lot of people in 2021 and not enough people are questioning this insanity.
