Everything I have ever gotten from Wal Mart was unsatisfactory (except their diet soda, which I have tasted and is excellent.) I won't go into the popped innertubes, pilled sheets, and bleachy milk here, but I do agree: The cashiers at Wal Mart cn be rude!
It may be time to find an actual yarn store-Yes, they do exist! Also, there is a good store called Hobby Lobby that is owned by Christians and treats their employees well.

I hate Walmart with a passion! I'd order my yarn online first even if it wasn't as eco friendly as driving across town. Luckily,we have several huge craft stores in our area so I don't have to do this but if you decide to order online try mary maxim or herrschners.
LOL If my coffee pot breaks, I go to Target, not much better but its not Walmart. Actually, I do a lot of shopping at our local thrift store. They have the most wonderful stuff. They turned our Kmart into a Sears about a year ago. I never shop at Sears, no yarn there either. The store manager at the Walmart told me he didn't understand the cashiers attitude at all because "walmart is doing everything we can to sustain the environment" Not that I have noticed but hey, maybe we are totally unaware??????? and blind????? and stupid????
MCGRATH2 I am painfully aware of that. It is such a shame when they claim to be so different. I rarely shop there but budget and distance restraints sometimes force me to do it and I hate every minute of it. Luckily, I only end up there every 5 or 6 months and try to go early and only get what I have to get and get out. I wish there was a store besides Walmart that I could find a bigger selection of yarn. Even Michael's has a small selection althought I do try there first :)
That's kind of ironic to hear because I was listening to a show the other day on the radio and the most eco-friendly store was Walmart and they won't even let you use the bags lol. I try not to shop at Walmart even though many of the things I want are much cheaper there - they just turned out not to be the store they claimed they would be.
I rarely shop at Walmart but did yesterday because they have Haines v-neck ladies T-shirts for $5 AND because they have the best selection of yarn in our area. I bought 6 T-shirts and 9 skeins of yarn. Less then 20 items so I went through the express line (not so express, it took forever). I noticed they are now selling reusable bags on a rack at the check out, hmmm. The cashier was quite pleasant, rare for Walmart. She moved my bag aside and was going to use the plastic bag. I politely hand her my bag (that she ignored) and she got very nasty. She had scanned 2 skeins of yarn and when I gave her my bag (that she ignored) she got really huffy, shoved the yarn under her arm, kind of like she had to juggle it to keep from dropping all the heavy stuff she was being forced to put in my bag and said "this makes it so much harder". I said "I am so sorry, I know it really pisses you guys off when you have to use these bags". (I was mad). I was informed by the once pleasant cashier that they do not get paid to indulge customers. What the fuzzy?????? I asked her why they sell them if they don't want us to use them. She said they sell them to take home and use for other stuff, NOT for shopping. If I hadn't needed the shirts or the yarn I would have walked out. Store manager (his name is Happy) was very nice when I ranted at him, other customers looked rather uncomfortable, former polite cashier looked very uncomfortable and as for me, I will drive across town next time to buy the stupid yarn. Just another reason I do not shop at Walmart.
