I’m sorry to say this. Typically, I am not a fan of Wal-Mart in general. But they do have a great distribution system with low prices, something you want to have at your disposal when preparing for an on-coming storm.
So what did Wal-Mart do today that is so irritating? Well, we drove by there about 11:30 AM (Sunday, Aug 31), and they were closed. CLOSED!!! And it wasn’t just that Wal-Mart, its ALL the Wal-Marts in Baton Rouge that closed. We don’t know when they closed. And we don’t know why. No one knows. But at the time, it was about 24 hours before the tropical force winds really bear down on us, and people need water, ice, food, and general hurricane stuff. The Albertson’s Market next door was jammed with people. No wonder.
I don’t understand why all the Wal-Marts closed so early. It doesn’t make sense. If they are saving their stocks for after the storm hits, that makes some sense. Except, that if the storm is as bad as they say it could be, no one will be able to get to the Wal-Mart to get what they need.
