I've gotten a few PMs asking about this, here is my response:
Every time I've gone to a Walmart it's been dirty with a confusing layout, virtually no customer service available on the floor, not enough parking, and long checkout lines. The prices and product assortment are similar to Target, so there's really no reason for us to go to Walmart unless they happen to carry an item that I can't get from Target or Amazon (which is rare). There are three Walmarts and two Targets within 5 miles of us, we go to Target once or twice a week on average and Walmart once every few months or so.
I don't have a problem with Walmart in principle...I understand that there is a large market of customers for whom price is the only concern, even if the difference is only pennies.
