      Before the installment of the grocery section, the Wal-Mart in Vacaville was a grungy store. Not only were the sidewalks and the parking lot littered with gum and ingrained grime, but the dirt continued on in the store. When I entered, I first noticed the dried mud and deep scratches in the flooring. It appeared the employees only cleaned the store, at least the entrance to the store, about once a week. For wherever I looked, upon entering the store, I could see dried dirt and grime, where customers would drag it in on rainy days.

      After the grocery section installment, the store looks cleaner. The entrance flooring looks almost completely clear, and the grocery section flooring looks topnotch, making the customers wish to look at the processed foods. If the


      employees maintain this current clean state, I believe they will attract and please more customers.

      Unfortunately, the new clean entrance did nothing to improve the quality of the rest of the store. Some shelves still remain bear, showing employees are either slow in keeping products in display or slow in sending requests for more valued items. Additionally, the prices are confusing. Either products are sitting or hanging by the wrong price signs, or the price signs are missing. Some items will have the price as a sticker on the item, but certainly not all of them. This can be very frustrating for customers who are in a hurry.

      Despite the confusion and occasional misplacements, the products themselves seem to be in good working condition. The products sold merely to look pretty also ...


      • appear as they should. So, if customers are willing to spend a little more time trying to find the right price, they will more than likely find the items meet all their needs, and at a good price too.

        Occasionally, I run into some less than pleasant employees. For example, as I was looking for a purse one day, I overheard a couple employees talking about my dress and my expression. They were harmless and were not saying anything terribly derogatory, but the conversation was annoying to overhear all the same. The cashiers who like to speak about their political beliefs tend to make one uncomfortable as well.

        Once out of the store, with items in hand, many customers run the risk of running into beggars. With the consistently poor California economy,

        Vacaville is becoming more and more of a dangerous town to shop and live in. Now, one lady with a shopping cart is none too threatening, considering she blesses you and walks away after the first denial. However, some of the beggars will corner young customers and vulnerable looking customers to get money. Even if the customer gives the beggar a few dollars, the beggar grumbles about the customer being a cheapskate. These beggars only have more of a negative impact on the store.

        Overall, I recommend the Wal-Mart in Vacaville only for the great deals. The employees can be a little annoying, the beggars threatening, and the shopping process frustrating. But, once the customers have the items they need in their trunks are driving home, they will find themselves satisfied.
