    SHERWOOD, Ark. — Protesters supporting the Black Lives Matter movement blocked the entrances and exits of two Arkansas Walmart locations Sunday afternoon, forcing the stores to close. Dozens of demonstrators, chanting “Black lives matter,” “Defund the police” and “Defund Walmart,” marched in front of Walmart locations in Jacksonville and Sherwood, KARK reported. A few protesters at each site carried signs that read, “Walmart is destroying public education,” among other messages. The retail giant is based in Bentonville, Arkansas, but it was not immediately clear if proximity to the corporate headquarters had any bearing on Sunday’s protests. According to the Arkansas...

    A Wisconsin Walmart manager recently followed store policy in Northern Wisconsin. They interacted with a long term friend of mine. He is an accomplished world traveler, due to his vocation as a missionary. He has traveled extensively in Europe, Asia, and Australia. He has often remarked about how little freedom most of the world has, compared to the United States.He is a brave man. I marvel at the dangers he considers routine.  When in the United States, he openly carries a sidearm, most commonly a Glock .40 caliber semi-automatic pistol.  He says liberty, unclaimed and unused, is easier to lose....

    Walmart is scrubbing its website of third-party merchandise with a slogan widely seen as diminishing the Black Lives Matter movement against police brutality and racism. The nation's largest retailer said it's indefinitely halting sales of items declaring "All Lives Matter" after hearing from some workers and customers who questioned the intent behind the phrase. "We will continue to sell other variations, including 'Blue Lives Matter,'" a Walmart spokesperson told CBS MoneyWatch in an email. "We fundamentally believe all lives do matter and every individual deserves respect,'' the Walmart spokesperson stated. "However, as we listened, we came to understand that some,...

    Walmart will stop selling “All Lives Matter” merchandise “indefinitely” on its website — after facing intense backlash over the items, according to a new report. “We fundamentally believe all lives do matter and every individual deserves respect,” Walmart said in a statement, USA Today reported. “However, as we listened, we came to understand that the way some, but not all, people are using the phrase ‘All Lives Matter’ in the current environment intentionally minimized the focus on the painful reality of racial inequity.”

    The Federal Reserve bought bonds issued by companies including AT&T Inc., UnitedHealth Group Inc. and Walmart Inc. as part of its emergency lending program set up in response to the pandemic, according to new disclosures.

The disclosures, posted Sunday, showed that of the $207 million of purchases made on the first day of buying, about 21% were of debt issued by firms in the consumer non-cyclical sector, while 15% were...

    According to the FDA, there is a multi-state outbreak of Cyclospora infections potentially linked to salads containing those ingredients. Cyclospora is a microscopic parasite that can affect the intestinal tract and cause diarrhea. It is treated with antibiotics. As a result, Giant Eagle, Walmart and Aldi have issued recalls for several Fresh Express salad products. Customers should throw those products away immediately. The recalled products are clearly marked with the letter “Z” at the beginning of the Product Code, which is located on the upper right-hand corner of the front of the package. Those products containing iceberg lettuce, red cabbage...

    I order a lot things online from Walmart. I did this even before the Pandemic. Last week I had trouble with a 'suspicious shipment' from Slidell, LA (Land of Katrina thieves). Before that several years ago I bought the 'Ol Yeller' DVD from Walmart. Both were strange in how the shipping was handled. I quickly received the 'Ol Yeller' DVD - quicker than normal. But there was not DVD inside the case. Apparently Walmart 'Associate' stole it for themselves. I had to take it customer service, who did not believe me. A replacement was ordered. But then there was another...

Sam insisted each store carry firearms, including handguns. When Sam was not there to enforce those policies, the leftists who took over the...

    The next target of the woke patrol during all of the “racial realignment” discussions going on is apparently Walmart. As NBC News reported this week, complaints were lodged against the retail giant in Denver recently when a local news reporter highlighted the fact that the local Walmart had a policy of keeping “multicultural hair care and beauty products” in locked cabinets. Those specialty products are primarily purchased by Black shoppers, so the implication was that the store didn’t trust people of color and made them ask a clerk to unlock the case. In response, Walmart almost immediately said they...
  • Walmart will stop putting ‘multicultural’ products in locked cases

    Walmart will no longer place “multicultural hair care and beauty products” in locked cases in any of its stores, the company confirmed Wednesday. The practice, which Walmart says was only in place “in about a dozen” of its 4,700 U.S. stores, has received criticism for the implication that the customers who buy these products, largely people of color, can’t be trusted. The cases must be unlocked by a store associate, and the products are usually then taken to the front of the store for purchase.

But, she’s unsure of one of the biggest. Mayor Lightfoot said she was on a conference call with Walmart and other major retailers that had stores looted or heavily damaged during the unrest in Chicago. She said she pleaded with them to not abandon Chicago. "I think in the case of Walmart, what they were focused on was assessing the damage. They are doing an effort to donate fresh produce, to the...
