Now, let me talk about the Walmart. This shop center is very big, you can find absolutely everything. In my opinion, if you want to know the equivalent in France, the best comparison is probably Cora.
But you already know the France’s shop centers, so nobody here cares about them, we are here right now to talk about the specific aspects of the Walmart.
First, the random access shopping : all is tidy… Almost. Yeah, almost because it’s like the employees spent their time to sort all the items, but they forgot some of them so they tried to put them where they can find place. That’s just a feeling, but for example, you can find in the same place tooth paste, soap, shower gel, but the shampoo can be totally in the opposite in the shop center, that’s nonsense. You can sometimes spend 20 minutes to find a stupid dishwashing liquid (true story).
Then, the best part : all the medicaments are totally in free access without doctor prescription. When you’re from France, that’s very weird and fun.
Some people (especially the old ones) are in automatic machines they can drive to shop without effort.
Last point : you know how we care about ecology in France ? In the USA, they do the same thing, but the opposite (so not the same thing at all actually). When you go for your weekly shop, you come back with 1000 plasic bags. And the surprising thing, the employees fill them for you and they don’t let you fill yourself : that’s their job. Embarassing, but convenient.
That’s all for today folks, next time you’ll discover how to eat in America !
