I'm not a Wal-Mart fan, and I hated it when the chain decided to include my home town on its hit list. Now that it's here, of course, I have almost no choice but to do some of my shopping here. Too many of my old alternatives have gone out of business.

My local Wal-Mart here in Charles Town has a large in-store supermarket, and thus, unlike some other nearby stores, it actually does qualify as a supercenter. It's only a few years old, so it has not yet begun to take on that rather shabby look and feel that so many older stores in the chain exhibit. Well, maybe there's just a bit of that around the edges.

In terms of service, the famous Wal-Mart greeter is usually in place, but not always. As with most Wal-Marts, there are never enough people working the floor or the registers. There are times when aisles are crowded, and some items are in short stock. Lines for checkout are fairly common, but this store does does have the new do-it-yourself checkouts--which at least provides an option.

I come to my local Wal-Mart for the convenience of one-stop shopping. There are things I just can't get easily anywhere else, so I tackle as much as I can when I stop. (I don't love shopping.) The supermarket produce is resonably good and varied, but I'd rather not buy the fresh meats. Not that Wal-Mart's meat is bad, per se, but I can get better elsewhere--enough better to make the extra stop worthwhile.

My local Wal-Mart gets a "satisfactory"--in part because I think that's what it's earned and in part out of pure contrariness.

PROS: Wide selection, good prices, relatively well managed
CONS: It's a Wal-Mart
