Disagree With Walmart's Bike Policy? Take Off Your Clothes In Protest!


From the Consumerist

BikeForums member ReachHigher stripped down to her sports bra and spandex after Walmart refused to let her enter the store with her $600 bike. A manager explained that since Walmart sold bikes, bringing in an outside bike would obviously be too confusing to handle. ReachHigher asked if they also sold shirts. "She said yes so I took off my jersey and said well then I'd better not bring this in either..." read more here

well some "people" are just cheap!

Tyler said...

it's called the bottom line some of the first items on the row of the shelf are the lowest price in town while they strategically place higher priced items down the self which are not the lowest price it is a marketing strategy...the naive consumer think the lowest price item is such a deal they can afford to buy a slightly more expensive item if you ever notice there seems to be a correlation between people who shop at walmart and people who never have any money if walmart is helping these consumers live on a budget and save money then why do so many walmart customer live paycheck to paycheck

Bello Velo said...

Well why support local business's when the consumer seems to prefer going to walmart and costco?

Why also is the fattest nation buying in bulk? Maybe this is why we hate nudity or sorry god hates our bodies.

Bello's opinions are ridiculous. I assume Kroger is so much better than Walmart? Walmart is an easy target and nobody goes there because they like it. A lot of places dont let you bring your bikes inside, who cares. Lock it up if its that valuable to you. If its too valuable to lock up, its probably not the best bike for gettinig groceries at walmart is it? The utility company doesnt let you bring your bike inside there; are you going to turn off your power now? And as far as nudity, you can be naked as you like at home but I sure as hell am glad I dont have to see it when buying my zucchini.

My opinion? I don't have one I just thought it was funny and no I don't shop at walmart. I do shop at Kroger because they are union.

The walmarts here have bike racks.

Now about you eating zucchini that is ridiculous. My opinion is that you have not had a vegetable in a while.

I do think they should provide bike racks for their customers they provide parking for cars.

Isn't Costco union? Or do they just pay their workers a lot (for that field) even without a union?

Tyler said...

well anyways the point is fuck walmart

Bello Velo said...

Yes I believe they are. I don't buy in bulk though and don't want to join a club or group to buy my groceries.

hmmm support LBS but shop at a mega grocery.

Irony?

I buy in bulk when I shop at Garden Cove. I might as well buy a full bag of beans, rice, oats, flax seed, etc if I'm going to buy any. I know I'm going to eat it all before it goes bad because I always do. And that way I'll use fewer bags. I even really like the bulk section at Garden Cove. And they have a bike rack.

Bello Velo said...

I wouldn't consider that bulk....40 rolls of toilet paper and #10 cans of beanie weanies are bulk to me.

I shop there also (garden cove) nice place.

Funny two types of posts that get the most comments walmart and jesus..... go figure


moving on
