It's because the CEOs and their 2 best friends refuse to take a pay cut.

i wonder if it will affect the one near me. It hasn't even been open a year yet. I'd imagine it doesn't do well because not only is it less than 10 minutes away from THREE walmarts and in a very small 'city' its also literally across the street from the nigger part of town white people know to avoid. You can see a literal crack house from the parking lot kek

Walmart simply has too high of a store density, and their prototype "Walmart Express" store model failed. Most of the closures are the "Walmart Express" stores, and the rest in the US are midsized ones.

Nothing to do with the economy or wages for employees, purely to do with optimizing income/square foot.

No fucking clue. Here in Tulsa, there's a lot of them within a mile to several miles of each other. The one they just built is in between this Walmart and a Supercenter in Sapulpa, and that one took an assload of business away from this store, to the point we almost closed.

CEOs work under contract. Termination of the contract requires payment known to the Economically uninitiated as "Golden Parachutes".

>>61085757

There is some sort of tax law or something that actually makes it more profitable to leave the buildings empty than sell them or use them for good. Odd I know but these places will most likely just rot away.

I grew up in the south and Have seen towns literally go to shit. Sometimes they convert the buildings into multiple units for other businesses but the problem is the rent on shit is so fucking stupid that you can't start a small business and get storespace. So it'll be a hibbets or some other overpriced piece of shit store for a while then that will close and eventually it'll just be a run down eyesore.

What they should do is partition off the inside and have it be a sort of mini-mall for various small businesses and self employed people. Like a flea market but a little bit higher scale. With affordable rent.

Without getting too much into it, I have no reason to get my GED because CC is $17k for an associates and I don't feel comfortable borrowing money from the government. It would help if I had any career interests/dreams, but it's too late to start now (add the fact that I doubt I would have the thick skin required to deal with SJWs and required humanities courses).

Nonetheless, thank you for your service to the country.

You aren't wrong.....

I agree with a lot of those sentiments, but feel it is in poor taste to say so. I work with a lot of Walmart employees, and McDonald's employees.

Good people might have to use these bottom rung jobs as a transition when something goes terribly wrong, but the rest of them have mental deficiencies or personality disorders.

I'm glad they work, even more glad I don't have to work with them. Please don't release them into the job market. They might accidentally end up higher on the food chain and it could take years of poor performance for them to settle back to the bottom

I've seen old Walmarts become medical centers. It's actually a very good way to repurpose them. All the electrical and plumbing is up to par, they can afford the rent, they are conveniently located and have large parking lots.

Supercenters could easily be used as malls or trade fairs as well

No, just a contractor who works in commercial environments. Have to work with these people in an informal way so I really see how they act as employees. Dollar General is a weird one- it seems to be an even mix of pretty decent people and mouth breathers that Walmart wouldn't hire

Very true. A problem with that is it would take a generation of shitty service and poor food quality for kids to catch onto the idea of doing a good job for it's own sake. Imagine growing up and being afraid to eat out because every time you do, stomach cramps and diarrhea are on the horizon
