I can't believe it's been two years already. Last Tuesday, August 15th was the second anniversary of this blog being Wal-Mart Free. And it seems like my personal ban against all thing Wal-Mart has started to take its toll on the world's largest retailer. On the same day of my wal-mart free anniversary, Wal-Mart announced on their Q2 FY2007 earnings call that they posted their first profit fall in 10 years. Coincidence? I'd like to think not.
And for those of you who still shop at Wal-Mart despite all my attempts otherwise, I offer you this, the December 2003 Fast Company article entitled "The Wal-Mart you don't know". It's a long read but well worth your time if you haven't perused it before. I suspect you might look at Wal-Mart a little differently afterwards.
