I never shop at Walmart.   It is so far away from me in my area.
I agree they can increase the price by 1 cent and hire a few more workers.

They all do that which annoys and irritate me.  I have always wanted to know the concept as to why.  To top it all is when the cashier is having problems with a customer and their coupons.

I think that's most of them. There was one that used to go to that was a supercenter. It just closed last week, which I wasn't surprised.

When I go to Walmart, I usually go to the self check out stations. They usually go a lot faster.

I haven't quite seen that many registers, but yeah, usually not all of them are open...

I heard Walmart is closing quite a bit of stores across the USA ... :/

I just hate it when people just block paths and you have no choice but to go around or ask them to move.

these days even the big chain stores are on the d.i.y craze, you might see them custom making everything from hamburgers to how you shop at retailers

At my Walmart in South Idaho, there are about 20 Checkouts, but they only have a couple manned in the early morning, one of which is the tabacco stand which you have to use if you want tobacco. In addition, they have the self checkouts open this early (8,30am, not that early is it!). So I mostly use the self checkouts, I can use them every bit as fast as the cashiers and I enjoy using them. Now on sale days; Black Friday etc. they do open most of the other checkouts. I do find it frustrating when I have like 30 items to check and the person in front of me has over 100. I sent a letter once to let them know I had been particularly impressed with one of their checkout operators who was always so friendly. She chatted to me as she checked my items and never made one mistake. Not only did they never respond to my letter, they never informed the Checkout Operator that they had received such a complimentary letter. Shame! The Checkout Operator left a few weeks later to start a new job! Their loss.

I have to agree with you, our Walmart has about 20 checkouts and on a weekend you're lucky if 4 are open.  Hate to tell you how long I have waited in line.  I have stopped going on weekends, I'll go someplace else before I have to wait in long lines.

My Walmart has plenty of cashiers. And if its very busy, I use self checkout, which I really enjoy. I wanted to grow up and be a grocery bagger.  But ended up being a librarian instead.  :)

I never shop at Walmart during the weekend. They never have enough cashiers and it takes forever to get out of there.

Well we have a super Walmart .  There is just certain time of the month I do not go.   When food stamps renew usually the 1st of the  month and  SNAP.  and  Medicare payments.    I never go tg Walmart at the beginning or the end of the month.  The lines are way too long.

Unfortunately, I've been to a few Walmarts in different states and they all seem to operate that way.  It's absolutely ridiculous.  Something else I've noticed, the cashiers at the Walmart in my hometown don't even greet you.

Whenever I use the self check I usually get an error message and still end up having to wait for customer service.  It'll say something like not all items are in the bag or something like that.

yes but they just installed self checkouts which help this problem
