lately I have read ome pretty cathing report about the tore we love to hate;Wal-mart.Surely with today' economy the motto "Save money, live better" ha never meant o much to o many. With check li t in hand I headed off to my local Signal Butte Super-cent...moreer to take on the role of my tery hopper and ee how the report ju tified were. The fir t ta k wa parking. Empty hopping cart , out of control children and traffic ignoring the arrow al o made it quite dangerou to pull up anywhere afely. I gave 5/10 for acce to the tore. Eventually I parked and proceeded to the lobby. I marveled at the tenacity of the world famou greeter. The man mu t have been touching 75 but till managed to ay "Welcome to Wal-Mart" and "Thank you have a nice day" to every body a well a keeping a ubtle eye on hopping cart content and re ponding to alarm .A good tart for cu tomer friendline and approachability. In fact I found that every employee who had direct cu tomer ervice re pon ibilitie had the ame helpful attitude. Unfortunately the helf tocker were far from helpful next I picked an item in the tore that I knew I would never be able to locate i.e. Pledge furniture poli h. The lady I a ked per onally walked me to the ai le Good work Wal-Mart. Due to the helf tocker though I could only award 9/10 for helpfulne . How about tock availability? Thi wa hi area that po ed the mo t problem for Signal Butte. Having re earched their cu tomer ervice policie I found out that there are certain item that mu t alway be on the helve or you get it free, the e item known are con idered life nece itie . Sugar, coffee, flour bread -the li t i endle and every thing I looked for wa in plentiful upply. However there were many item that I did want that were ju t not on the helve -thing that I wanted rather than needed! .While on he ubject of availability, I mu t mention a particular peeve of mine. At 6'2 thi mater doe not really effect me but my wife i a minu cule 5' tall and whenever he want a bottle of Pep i the only bottle available are on the top helf and right at the back, o he ha to tand on the bottom helf to reach for them. It may look hilariou but could be dangerou . I continued my expedition generally taking in the overall cleanline and tidine of the hop floor and re t room . My opinion wa that thi wa a trong point. Very clean floor and du t free helve boo ted my opinion of the place. Like wi e the men' re troom were potle and melled clean and fre h. There wa a clipboard with employee initial tating that they were checked very frequently and cleaned when nece ary. Moving over to food preparation area I neaked a peak through to the back of the delicate en and I could probably have eaten my dinner off of the hiny teel work urface . The di played food wa all covered and the taff wa wearing correct glove and head gear. Good job. The next area of intere t wa the checkout . Wherever I hop, there never eem to be enough ca h regi ter open. Unfortunately; thi wa the ca e on thi particularly bu y day. Even though a call went out for back up ca hier I didn't notice that it made a lot of difference. Another hold up eemed to be low re pon e time for cu tomer ervice manager to an wer call light which invariably meant that a tran action wa on hold and needed a upervi or to override the problem. Overall, I had a plea ant hopping experience that evening and I think my comment were fair.Area that need a little 'fine tuning' are certainly the parking lot, and cu tomer ervice re pon e time particularly in an wering telephone and ca h regi ter light . In my humble opinion I do not think that any minor error hould tarni h Wal-Mart' reputation becau e with their 'Rollback 'and 'Price match' policie , it i impo ible to buy cheaper anywhere. Today, that i all that matter . view less
A far a Walmart go, thi one i ju t okay. They don't have the great election that the Super tition Spring location ha and often run out of tock on certain item . However, the tore i clean and it i often le crowded than the other if you're looking to get in and ...moreout fa t.view less
I'm giving thi Target five tar imply becau e of there pharmacy. The line are alway long , but there attention to detail i incredible and they work their butt off for you. I have filled with fry , cv , and wallgreen and thi target i uperior to all.
