Arizona State University is gettin' a Walmart.

Walmart is apparently becoming a part of the American higher-education experience, as ASU is the third university to get a smaller Walmart store plopped right on its campus.

The store, which includes "financial services," a "basic" grocery, and a pharmacy, will be in the 5,000 square-foot location at Vista del Sol, the on-campus, dorm-ish apartments on the south side of the Tempe campus.

This is Walmart's third campus invasion, after opening at the University of Arkansas and Georgia Tech.

The ASU one is opening in May, but the question is, do you want it to?

Walmart is like crack: it's bad for society but you can't stop smoking it.

Might as well show the students what their future holds in the republican wet dream called Wal-America, the land of low wage, no benefit jobs with no union protection.


PS, I never have, and never will shop at a Walmart.

I go to walmart if they have something that I want to buy at a lower price than other retailers. why would I do anything else? I just bought a samsung television at walmart instead of fry's electronics and saved $50.00. I bought a coffee maker at fry's electronics instead of walmart and saved $9.00. it makes sense to me.

"financial services," a "basic" grocery, and a pharmacy....it's called free enterprise....capitalism at it's best.  That's probably something most of you just wouldn't understand.   And you bitchers abou WalMart will be just like everyone else....you will shop at WalMart.   And then complain that WalMart is on campus.  And then go back to Walmart to pick up some items you forgot.  Just a fact of life folks!

@eric.nelson745 I know, right, like how despicable is it that Walmart is now sullied and dirtied and polluted by this affiliation with ASU.

Jaffy, Jaffy, Jaffy....when will you ever learn to keep your mouth shut and be thought a fool rather than open it and prove you are a fool.

@TeaPublican yeah, no.  Walmart is not capitalism, it is forced socialism - you should hate it. China's favorite customer, creates welfare recipients.  Don't you hate foreigners and poor people taking your jobs and your money?

FWIW, I kicked my occasional WM habit and it feels great!  I shopped there about 3 times in the first year I got divorced and 0 tiomes over the last7 years.  BUY LOCAL.

@TeaPublican I haven't been in a Walmart in years.  And that is because I support American jobs and manufacturing.  Seem you don't.

You know that Walmart used to give out AHCCCS enrollment formed to hew hires?

Walmart is a company that sells products.  Nothing much more and nothing much less.  I fail to see how arranging to have a grocery store in an apartment development or on campus mars the reputation of ASU.

Matches and everclear (and a dozen other high proof alcohol products) are both perfectly legal products to sell to adults.  If there are still adults who aren't educated enough to know the consequences of mixing the two then there are some parents and teachers that have done a poor job of informing the younglings.

@WhoKnows  Then the ASU students should be safe.

@drgonzo @TeaPublican   So you kicked the WM habit huh?  Well I guess that places you in your 1st 2% category.  It's probably more like .2% if that.  Scream at Walmart all you want....they are successful because of all the AMERICANS that shop there every single day!

@WhoKnows @TeaPublican    Walmart is successful because people support it and WANT to shop there!  I have never seen a Walmart close because of lack of business....people want to shop there or they wouldn't be open.  Simple as that.
