The employees in the Pharmacy are paid much better than employees in the rest of the store. The pharmacists are paid very high salaries that are competitive with the wages at other drug stores. In addition, the pharmacy technicians are also paid competitively. Full time employees also receive health benefits which often have no co-pay for prescriptions.<br> + <br> + The Pharmacy at Walmart has a list of medications that only cost $4. There is also a list of $10 prescriptions for a 90 day supply. The $4 and $10 medication list is often seen as a loss leader. What this means is that the store loses money on the $4 prescriptions. The profit is given away in the hopes that customers buy products in the rest of the store to make up for the loss in prescription profit.<br> + <br> + The low price medications are actually a help to people who have limited funds and can be a life saver for those who don't have much cash. The pharmacy also price matches other pharmacies. If you find a lower price at another pharmacy, you can get a price match.</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Wal-Marthttp://daviswiki.org/Wal-Mart2012-09-22 06:43:06MaxLucasupdated hours <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Wal-Mart<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 6: </td> <td> Line 6: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> ||6am-12a<span>m, Sun 7am-10p</span>m||24 hour|| </td> <td> <span>+</span> ||6am-12am||24 hour|| </td> </tr> </table> </div> Wal-Marthttp://daviswiki.org/Wal-Mart2012-09-21 08:39:36TomGarbersonWow, rant! <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Wal-Mart<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 86: </td> <td> Line 86: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ Wow, what a rant.

The only option there is to shop overseas in which case there's a hell of a long wait for the thing to arrive in this country and pass through Customs at SFO. Sure, no expensive doctor visit but you're technically breaking the US drug enforcement law doing it that way. And car repair is more than oil changes. Being charged upwards of $700 for a $14.99 distributor in Davis when the problem was actually the ignition coil anyway, a mere $75 part, is way more than being ripped off on an oil change...which I hear are regularly in the $100 range in Davis anyway. And my original statement still stands. Anyone who knocks Wal-Mart is a self-made millionaire who wants public school substitute teachers to overpay for prescription medicines to the extent that we do without, which could be FATAL, or spend so much on the prescription that we can't do other things like EAT, pay our rent or keep our car running so that we CAN get to the job. You might as well tell me that St Luke's in San Francisco should be closed because the services are FREE and they're a money-loser, since that's where my doctor is and you'd get me started on the same schpiel. Self-made independently wealthy millionaire snobs. --["Users/PaigeKennedy"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Wal-Marthttp://daviswiki.org/Wal-Mart2012-06-17 00:39:48MikeyCrewsre: <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Wal-Mart<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 83: </td> <td> Line 83: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ *if you're concerned about money, change your own oil and get your scrips over the internet.

What's EVIL are the prices in Davis for every little thing. What's evil is the price in Davis for a mere oil change at what passes for car repair shops there. At Wal Mart in Dixon it's only either $25 or $35 depending on whether or not you want the "older car oil special." From where I live in what's almost West Davis, the Wal Mart store in Dixon is the same distance as Target or even closer. And the employees are always there helping me and furthermore their Pharmacy did all they could to get my prescriptions down to their $4.00 rate even including calling the doctor FARTHER DOWN THE STREET IN "DOWNTOWN" DIXON to ask permission to split the thing into its two constituent drugs and bottle them separately so it would be covered under their $4.00 formulary. Anyone saying anything else apparently wants to pay upwards of $77.00 OR MORE for prescription medicines? I sure don't. I'm a substitute teacher and extra money like that doesn't grow on trees. I don't have health insurance or prescription coverage so I'm stuck having to find "low cost" or "free" clinics and get the prescriptions filled at Wal-Mart and this is for Blood Pressure medicine - which is, of course, from living broke for most of my adult life for reasons not Wal-Mart's fault. But if you don't like Wal-Mart you must be a self-made millionaire and can afford to have your prescriptions filled elsewhere.....but not me, thanks for your opinions but no thanks. --["Users/PaigeKennedy"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Wal-Marthttp://daviswiki.org/Wal-Mart2012-03-15 23:58:15MaxLucas <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Wal-Mart<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 32: </td> <td> Line 32: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> Generally, Walmart is known for its crowds, long lines, messy stores, and the type of people that their stores attract.

I go to the Dixon WalMart once a week. They carry Amy's organic entrees for lunch. My husband likes the Zataran's frozen entrees. All the items I buy for my family I can get at much lower prices than Safeway or Nugget: cheddar cheese sticks for my kids, whole wheat pasta including lasagna noodles (which I can't find anywhere else at this price). mini-bagels, basmati rice &amp; school supplies. My kids like their clothes &amp; electronics section. I just bought my boys new bikes they picked out (Mongoose dual-suspension mountain bike for $100 &amp; Huffy black beach cruiser bike for $80). Walmart does a service to those folks who cannot afford or have the brains not to overpay at Co-Op or Nugget. And if you don't like the lines, use the self-checkout. I let my kids do all the checking out and bagging. They have fun &amp; it saves me time. The only other store in Davis with self-checkout is the SaveMart (formerlly Albertsons). To avoid lines I go shopping at WalMart either Sunday morning, when people are asleep or at church ,or during the dinner hour (6-7pm0 on weekdays. And stop at Pedrick Produce on the way to get fresh produce.

Wal-Mart only offers non-union, minimum wage jobs that depress job markets and belittle honest labor (I wonder what Marx would say about Wal-Mart). Calling their peons "associates" is a mockery-- when associates at one store in Canada voted to organize into a Union, Wal-Mart fired everyone and then punished the community by closing the store. Walmart has also been accused of being sexist.<br> - <br> - * Wait, I'm confused here. In two paragraphs, it says that Wal-Mart runs into small towns and runs other businesses out, and yet it's a "punishment" when they close down? Now, I'm as much a Wal-Mart hater as the next person, but you can't have it both ways here. Big business either helps or it hurts. -- ["SaulSugarman" Saul]<br> - * Well, if you run all the businesses out of town, you're the only one left, right? So if you pack up shop and there's no one else left, you're doubly screwed. Then count in all the employees a Walmart has or had, the monetary effects on the city, etc.<br> - <br> - If you go into a typical Wal-Mart store, the marketers have the stores setup in such a way that your time will be wasted especially if you want to get a specific item, pay for it and get out. Typically, the wide aisles are narrowed with a lot of merchandise stacked in the middle to make it difficult to easily move around especially with customers looking at the items for sale. When you are ready to purchase your given items, even though there are 20+ cash registers, only 2 or 3 are open at a given time especially when busy such as Saturday with the checkout lines being 20 people long. Marketers are the ones behind this design with the idea of trying to keep you in the store as long as possible thinking you will buy more merchandise from them in the meantime. (''Well no sh-- sherlock, that's what marketers are supposed to DO'')<br> - <br> - Some people think Wal-Mart is hard-nosed with suppliers, and that them moving into small towns and runs the other businesses out.<br> - <br> - If anyone you care about is thinking about working at Walmart, have them read [http://www.nickelanddimed.net/ "Nickel and Dimed" By Barbara Ehernreich]. Reading this book will also change your shopping habits, i.e. hanging the clothes back on the hangers properly after trying them on, refold items and straighten the stacks as you pull out items to look at, saying hello to and thanking employees on the floor when they help you, etc., anything to help ease the employee's suffering.<br> - * ''"hanging the clothes back on the hangers properly after trying them on, refold items and straighten the stacks as you pull out items to look at, saying hello to and thanking employees on the floor when they help you"? I didn't know you had to be moved by a book to do this, I thought this was just common courtesy and manners. Or am I old-fashioned?'' --["MichelleAccurso"]<br> - * I agree with Michelle. Plus, the book is not that incredible. It is a personal experience from someone who already had a strong dislike for Wal-Mart (who also, by the way, if you read the book, almost failed her drug test when applying) when applying and working for a job there. Again, I really don't like Wal-Mart, but there are probably better books to read that codemn it than that of Barbara Ehernreich's personal account of folding t-shirts and encouraging unions. --["SaulSugarman"]<br> - <br> - An [http://www.thenation.com/doc/20051121/featherstone article] in The Nation criticized Wal-Mart's philanthropic efforts, noting that their donations coincide with their negative image. Indeed, while the Walton's contributed over $1.1 billion between 2001 and 2005, [http://www.businessweek.com/magazine/content/05_48/b3961603.htm they donated] a total of $250 million between 1962 and 2000.<br> - <br> - There is a film highly critical of Wal-mart called [http://www.walmartmovie.com/ "Wal-mart: The High Cost of Low Price"]. It may be screened locally. PBS Frontline made an anti-Walmart documentary in 2004 titled [http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/walmart/view/ Is Wal-Mart Good For America?]. Those with shorter attention spans may enjoy this Jib Jab satire: [http://www.jibjab.com/Movies/BoxMart.aspx "Big Box Mart"] (Macromedia Flash required to play).<br> - * John Tierney from the New York Times has shown that "Wal-mart: The High Cost of Low Price" is grossly dishonest about Wal-Mart, so I wouldn't recommend seeing it if you value the truth. Unfortunately, the NYTimes article is subscription-only, but I can summarize a little. The "documentary" claims that a store called H&amp;H Hardware was driven out of business by Wal-Mart's low prices. It fails to mention, however, that another hardware store is now operating successfully right where H&amp;H used to be. H&amp;H closed because of mismanagement. According to the [http://www.cleveland.com/news/plaindealer/index.ssf?/base/news/113049208153501.xml&amp;coll=2 Cleveland Plain Dealer], "H&amp;H's founder and patriarch said this week that the big-box competitor wasn't to blame for the demise of the business, which reopened last week under new ownership." Also, the film implies that the local Amish population is fearful of the new Wal-Mart. Tierney interviewed one of them, who said, "Wal-Mart isn't really a big issue with our people... At first some were upset because they were scared by something new. But now they like being able to get everything here."<br> - <br> - <br> - ==Controversy: Pro's==<br> - <br> - Lower-class people tend to have a different view of Wal-Mart, in that it raises their standard of living by offering competitive prices. I wasn't aware that the "minimum wage" had risen to $8 or $9 an hour. The idea that Wal-Mart wages "depress job markets" is not borne-out by economic theory or empirical data. If Wal-Mart's closing of a store "punished the community" in Canada, does this mean that Wal-Mart's presence was beneficial? As to complaints about Wal-Mart's quality, you are free to choose whether to shop there.<br> - <br> - It is also worth noting that Wal-Mart's CEO recently publicly advocated raising the federal minimum wage. (The federal minimum wage is $5.15/hour. [http://www.dol.gov/esa/minwage/america.htm Some states have higher minimum wages], but most are either the same as as the federal wage or have no laws so the federal applies by default. Keep in mind when comparing money values across the country that rent, food and other basics of life are generally far more expensive in California. Rent and food in an college town similar to Davis but located in Pennsylvania is a third of the cost... even with a much larger house.)</span> </td> <td> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Wal-Marthttp://daviswiki.org/Wal-Mart2007-03-10 19:01:01TonyOrozco <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Wal-Mart<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 59: </td> <td> Line 59: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> ''2007-03-10 17:55:02'' [[nbsp]] Their lines aren't nearly as bad as they were a few months ago, it's <span>hard</span> to say that's a problem.
