Poor little Walmart……. Don’t I wish I had bought stock when they went public…….
The jury is still out.
And the USSR building missile sites in Cuba is just a sidebar.
The polls have Hillarymart ahead by 95 percent.
What’s the matter, LindaDHernandez, couldn’t get a job at Walmart?
I saw the sidebar story and thought of how fragile & depressed kids are in today’s world. All we had to worry about were nukes 90 miles off the coast.
Man, I must be old. I can remember shopping at Woolco.
I hated to see the St. Louis Globe-Democrat fold, that left St. Louis with only the Democrat Party’s St. Louis Post Dispatch.
I used to get shoes at Monkey Wards
I also bought bible gm for a pony
I’m old enough to remember shopping at Woolco as well as Wannamaker’s. We had a small Wannamaker’s just up the street from us in a small shopping center in the mid 60’s. We even had a SS Kresge’s store in downtown Spokane which was the predecessor of K Mart back then. As well as a Monkey Wards.
I thought it was
“a country boy will survive”
i’ll have to listen to that tune again, I have been singing it wrong
My wife and I bought a General Electric kitchen range in 1984 from Montgomery Wards that lasted for 30 years until finally giving up the ghost in 2014 when it was replaced by a Kenmore range from Sears which has also gone belly up.
You were 12.
Even with Birthday and Christmas money you couldn’t have bought much.
(I bought Gold at $280/oz – but could only afford 2 ounces)
If you get that time machine worked out, I got a few bucks to invest, too.

Air raid signals, hiding under our desks,,,
Jump 35 years later, seeing all the Mom and Pop stores destroyed…
Paybacks are Hell.

Wallmart caters to the lowest common denominator.
So far, So good!
Montgomery Wards. I always picture some old coot hitching up his drawers and telling his wife and dog: “Wey-elllll, I guess I’ll be goin’ down ta the Monkey Wards ta buy me a new wrench ta fix the terlet with”.
