I dunno. I shop sometimes at a Walmart in North Bergen New Jersey and it is spotless. Every employee I have dealt with is friendly and knowledgeable. The store is well lit and well stocked. And 3% sales tax. On the other hand, I shopped a few times at a Walmart in Lodi NJ and it was disgusting with the opposite of everything in the North Bergen store. So your experience may depend on individual stores. It's a free country thank God and we can choose where we work and where we shop.
