Wal-Mart says \"TOO BAD\"

I am asking again for any and all help to put Wal-Mart in their place. I called the Co-Manager back tonight (since he never bothered to call me) and he said "Corp said we are doing this in all stores and ....well we are not going to move." He did not quote them with his next comment but he said "That's the way it is too bad".

I am most angry that they move in to these small towns and run out the other grocery stores. Then don't give a hoot about the community they are in.

With as many people that have this allergy I know I am not the only one faced with this issue. Even if you do not shop at one please lend your voice to the fact that they do not value the life of someone with this allergy.

I'm Canadian, so we got Wal-Mart later than in America. I did see a 60 Minutes segment on how they would destroy towns and then if profits weren't up, they'd up and leave and the town would become a ghost town.

It's not because they're American, but I do have an equivalent store (value/price) IMHO to shop at, Zeller's, so ever since seeing that 60 Minutes segment, I have boycotted Wal-Mart.

If I were in your position, I would ask anyone that you know or who cares about your PA child to boycott Wal-Mart for their crappy response to your very valid concern.

Is this happening in Wal-Mart nation wide in America?

A nation wide boycott might *hit* them well enough especially at this time of year.

As I say, I feel I have an alternative - Zellers. If people have Target or whatever other department stores of comparable value (?), I'd go there and I'd also let Wal-Mart know why.

Best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Mom1995, I'm sorry, but from your initial post in this thread, I have no idea what Walmart has done wrong allergy-wise that you are trying to talk to management about.

Is there another thread somewhere that you're referring to? I can't support you if I don't know what you're talking about!

They have been doing this for several years in Iowa with tree nuts only. I do know that I complained about loose peanuts in one of their Iowa stores and they removed them and now only sell shelled peanuts in prepackaged bags.

Is this just tree nuts?

Could I have the store location and state, please? There is no reason to be treated this rudely about this.

I am a stockholder and I want to bring this to their attention.

I made a previous post also sign'd mom1995. Re-cap they have choosen this year to place an 8ft long 4ft wide dump bin of loose nuts.My DA is allergic to ALL nuts. In her case this is life threatin. I can no longer take her in there. The other day I went in to see if they had moved it and to my horror there were 3 kids playing in the nuts and they then went about touching everything as they walked up the isle. This is why she can no longer go there. Wal-Mart has decided to say too bad. All I asked was if they remove them from the main isle of the store and into the produce dept where we can advoid that section and with the hopes that less people or kids would come in contact with them. They said no. I could leave her at home or go shop else where. Thank you for asking. ]Originally posted by DRobbins:

We live in Hobbs NM. This location is saying they have been told not to move it. That "?" someone at their Corp office said no. Friday the produce manager called me back and said that someone from their corp office would call me back either Friday or Monday. Well it's Tuesday and stillno word. That's okay though my mother-in-law has found an ADA Law Firm that feels we may have a case. Maybe that will make them move it. THank you for help. Quote:Originally posted by cathlina:
