The tale of the reoccurring collapsing roof

14513_2487946_medium

One more reason not to shop at Wally World;

For the third time in three years, rooftop blizzard burdens have closed the Spearfish Wal-Mart. This time, however, the roof did not collapse.

Officials are concerned because the weight of the snow is more than double what the city building inspector and company engineers consider a safe load for roof supports.

You’d think they would have it fixed by now? Isn’t it ironic that the store that sells junk that breaks when you get it home (main reason I don’t shop there) has a roof that keeps breaking or has the threat of breaking?

I’m LMAO over the right wingnut capitalist apologists who belly-ache about one-size government-solutions-fit-all when clowns like Wally World stamp out the same store regardless of zoning, climate, weather, or local aesthetics.

Yeah, the Hell with Tin-foil hats, more like Tin-foil roofs!

It’s the Wal-Mart way.

Actually, in OKC, my fair suburb had a super-walmart, a regular walmart, and one of those walmart neighborhood markets (just the grocery store, no hair care and tire center).
The neighborhood market isn’t a bad idea. It would probably let walmart get around a lot of the anti-big box store types in larger cities – especially in poorer urban areas where the only other place to shop is the 7-11.

And Walgreens. How can that place sell sweatshirts for $6 bucks anyway?
