A Walmart store in close proximity (within 10,000 feet) to one of Mexico's most precious cultural landmarks certainly takes the "precious" and the "cultural" away from the landmark! The ancient Aztecs must be rolling their graves! In addition to items produced by slave labor in foreign countries, Walmart sells semiautomatic rifles. Their only mission is to make money. I'm sure that "bribery" doesn't top the list of corrupt practices they've employed to earn them the #1 Top Global Retail Ranking, but to think that Walmart bought its way into the "city of the gods" is unthinkable!

That's Walmart for you, always finding a way to slither in, take hold and make profits hand over fist without any regard to the communities they're operating in.

We have the same problem with supermarkets ruining parts of the Scottish highlands and destroying local shops. It's pure unadulterated greed!

If walmart can ruin the United States of America it can ruin anyplace. To me anyone that shops there or works there are a the level with inmates of death camps who hide so fellow inmates can die first.

Did anyone get a picture of the monster who left that slime trail in its wake? I have never set foot in a Walmart and I never will.
