This trail was absolutely beautiful! It is such a wonderful trail even for those of us in our 70's.. The bridge is the only hard part. We did it over several days Going out 15 to 20 miles and returning. There can be no more lovely spot We just finished up a 3 day ride on the CDA trail, great family ride! The best part was that my 5 year old son was able to ride the entire length from Mullan to Chatcolet and my 2.
Arriving at Mullan the night before we started we got a room at the Lookout Pass motel, it is an absolute dive with mostly monthly rental guests, I'd stay there again but only with some of my dirt bag friends but it wasn't really fit even for my tough and hardened wife, kids didn't even notice but that one of their beauties, I will say that as horrible as the place is it is very cheap and the sheets were surprisingly clean.
Wallace is super charming and has good food to boot. The first day we rode from Mullan to Kellogg, nearly all downhill, nearly all adjacent to I90, lots of highway noise, lots of clear cuts and super fund sites That said will still do it again, smooth and downhill! If you stay in Kellogg you must eat at the Moose Creek Grill, an extremely high quality american bistro and the best restaurant by far we saw on the whole trip, their entrees and desserts are to die for, the service and owner are top notch and the atmosphere is great.
The second day we left Kellogg and rode by some more not so nice super fund type stuff with adjacent highway but for only a short while. Once you get to Enaville the trail gets very very nice, literally a hundred yards from the "Snake Pit Restaurant" we saw our first Moose, got away from the highway finally and started really enjoying it all.

For a shuttle we were very happy with Lou , I drove the 1. Beware of certain young male ego maniac riders around the busy part of the trail 15 miles on both sides of Harrison , most people all females and older men actually showed respect and courtesy by slowing down to our young kids who were trying their best to hold their lines and obey the rules of the trail but on several occasions some TDF wannabes blazed by my little girl on her pedal-less bike at nearly 40mph without any consideration to the potential consequences of a collision.
Overall this is a great ride suitable for all ages and levels of fitness. If you are from a warm southern CA environment they do make snow tires with ice studs for bikes we have them in Montana which is how we ride 12months a year.

We accomplished it this past Labor Day weekend. We did the lake section from Harrison to Plummer and back.

Don't miss ice cream at the Creamery in Harrison to reward yourself. My daughter and I had hot fudge sundaes which were the best I've ever had We did several other sections of the trail as well as the Hiawatha trail.
The Hiawatha trail was a bit rougher than we had anticipated. Our hybrid bikes made it fine but mountain bikes might make the ride more comfortable. We stayed at the Guesthouse Suites in Kellog which I would recommend for location and access to the trail which is right outside the hotel.
The Moose Creek Inn in Kellog is a delightful restaurant which is also just a short bike ride from the hotel, try there Lasagna which might be the best I've had in a long time! I finally got to ride the trail in August and it was spectacular! I rode from Wallace to Heyburn State Park. I camped over night and rode back to Wallace the next day.

Well worth the trip out of the way. Our next night was in Harrison. Very small community, not nearly as nice as the bed and breakfast.

Do make sure you pack lots of water with you. Great trail for family ride. We rode downhill from Mullan to Harrison then shuttled to Plummer and rode downhill back to Harrison.

The only uphill was the 6 miles climbing up out of the lake basin to Plummer. The return trip was a rush, coasting the first 6 miles. We didn't see a moose, but several were seen on the day we were on the trail, just not by us. The only problem on the trail is water. None of the trail heads have water because of the fear of lead pollution from the old mine at Kellogg and the fact that the railroad used mine waste to build the track on.
Therefore, either carry it with you we both had oz Camelbaks and did fine. You can get water in any of the small towns that you go thru. From Enaville to Harrison, though, there are no towns.

Maries, near Heyburn State Park. Everyone is saying great things about the Trail of the Coeur d'Alene's, and these are just some of the gems to discover along the way. We have ridden this trail twice, first in and then again in I have described both approaches below.
The 72 mile paved trail extends from Plummer, Idaho to Mullan, Idaho. The natural scenery is wonderful and osprey, eagles and moose sitings are common. A trail map is available on the Friends of Trail of the Couer d'Alene website and a free trail map which includes mileage between trailheads and an overall trail elevation picture can be requested from the same website.
The trail is located in Idaho's Silver Valley from which the largest amount of silver has been extracted in the world. The original rail line was built on contaminated silver mine trailings and later capped with the asphalt trail used today.
Because of the contamination that is under the trail, trail users are encouraged to stay on the trail and to not drink the water.
The trail itself is smooth and meticulously maintained by the Couer d'Alene tribe and the Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation. Sure, one can ride the entire trail from start to finish in one day but consider riding this trail over two or three days and take in some local activities on each day. We changed our approach after learning that a foot section of the trail had washout in which we would not be able to bypass.
Our new approach ended up being a great way to ride the trail. Our new plan was to stay in Harrison mile Harrison has a beautiful view of Lake Couer d'Alene. We rode from Harrison mile We drove to Kellogg, checked into our hotel and explored Kellogg. Kellogg lodging options include the Silver Mountain resort and also the Guest Inn other options are also available, check those out, too! Kellogg has a ski resort and access to the world's longest gondola is literally at the front door of either of these lodging facilities listed.
The gondola runs in the summer so one can ride to the top for the view or take a mountain bike up and ride down. The Couer d'Alene trail runs past these facilities. We road from Kellogg mile On our return bike ride, we stopped in Wallace mile We also took the town trolley tour and silver mine tour.
The silver mine tour is lead by a miner, who operated equipment for us, and told us about the Sunshine mining disaster in the area.
We spent another night the night in Kellogg. We saw a moose enjoying the water this day. The night before we began our ride, we stayed in Harrison. We had a non-riding member who ferried us to the Plummer trailhead in the morning.
The roadway to Plummer does not parallel the trail so it was a little out of the way to drive to the trail head. If we were to do this approach again, we would ride our bikes to the Plummer trail head for an additional We rode from Plummer mile 0 to Kellogg mile We had two moose sitings this day. We rode from Kellogg mile We had saw a mother and calf moose this day.
This trail needs to be in the Rails to Trails Hall of Fame. It has one of the best combinations of scenery and good trail surface of any trail in North America.
Day Three and we head out from Killarney Lake to explore. Checked out camping at Rose Lake. You cannot trust the tent symbols on those maps unless you have a second source. Close to freeway and the trail. Too good to be true. Looks like a good place to ride up the river to Enaville TH We moved on, exploring up the valley and landed at the Enaville Trailhead.
This trailhead has some features not found in the average facility. It may have been a cat house and rowdy groggery Back When, but there sure were a lot of bikies pedaling over.
Perhaps it was the Cold Beer on the sign. The day was hot. Park the van, assembly the folding mountain bike, equip it and head SW, down the river. This is a pleasant and quiet rural ride through pine forests and meadows along the river, with the hills crowding close to the trail. The river meanders in a series of loops down to the Chain Lakes.
The vistas here were a little closer than found in the Chain Lakes. Found that there is a pit stop at the Cataldo TH. They also have shade, which was welcome as the day was HOT. The one adventure was on the way back: Everyone else has moose pix. There were enough moose tracks on the trail. Now something ahead was browsing in a thicket along the trail.
Could have been a horse. There are ranches along this stretch. Stayed the night fine. Got permission from manager. It has a nice level parking lot! Stopped in about 8 pm. Signs posted no overnight parking. Park in the way far back. We are in an RV and we asked to park. I park there regularly. Stayed with two other RV friends. Arrived in the RV around 3pm. Called and asked supervisor.
We arrived mid to late afternoon. Signs are up for no rv parking. No overnight RV parking permitted. Spent a quiet night, did not ask. Lot is posted No parking. The pool should have come with two boxes and I was sold only one box. Meanwhile while I was waiting for Alex to call me back, I called the manufacturer of the pool. But what she thinks in happen is that the store is unwrapping them not reading what is on the box and selling each box as a pool itself. So I told him I called the manufacturer and told them what was going on and all I ask if I could get some kind of compensation for not having a whole pool.
He said he would have to talk to his manager because he could authorized anything and the his manager would call me right back. So I called the store and asked to speak the Mark manager and I was told that he was on his lunch break. So I waiting for a while to see if Mark manager was going to call me back but he never did.
So I called the store back again and spoke to Alex the Assistant Manager to let him now that Mark never called me. I was appalled by this answer, so I called Walmart Corporation and spoke with a nice lady name Sheenkai and explained to her the situation. She in turn tried to contact Gerald Herran The general Manager and got his voicemail. Mind you this all happen around 12 noon and it is now 3: And if I do get a pool or the replacement parts I still have to pay him to come back and install the pool.
Can some please call me back about this matter? Even if you do not know of anyone, the petition can still be sign by you if you feel that this is true and it is not only happening in the United States, it is happening all over the World. A, that, Defective Contaminated Cantaloupes do causes Listeria and Foodborne Illness, which can vary from mild to severe sickness. Although I do not have the cantaloupes, they were given to the Wal-Mart store Managers. Overall, that night I developed more nausea, vomiting, dizziness, shortness of breath and also stomach pains, diarrhea, and headaches from eating the defected contaminated Cantaloupe.
The Cantaloupe was contaminated and the contamination made me sick. I was doing a straight talk demo at a store in Topeka and one of the floor managers named Jennifer was so incredibly rude! My husband was helping me with the demo because I have a bad back and she threatened to kick us out because of it! For both days we were here she was this way. To whom, it may concern, I wish I was writing to comment on how wonderful you are. How great I think your prices are.
How you offer such great value. The ones that waste management will come pick up if you call them. I was so excited to not have all of our trash just piled up in the front yard.
We head on home to get back to work, and what do you know, I forgot the freaking liners for it. So my husband leaves for work, I wait for my little one to wake up from her nap, and we pack up and head back to walmart.
I also get boxes, packing tape, yogurt, strawberries, crescent rolls, frozen yogurt, popsicles, and a Mamma Chia drink. Im being specific for a reason, mind you. I go to self check out, just doing my thing. I have my receipt in hand for the security woman at the door. Not an employed security officer from an outside company, just a run of the mill Walmart employee. In fact, the majority of the people at self checkout were still around, finishing their shifts, when I was in there the second time.
I have my pop up dumpster with me. Well what do you know, my receipt is with my husband. So, I call him. I bring my daughter outside.
I say screw this, and head back inside. The one a number of employees there SAW me purchase. Ok…cool…so I realize my food, mostly perishables, are in the car. I bring it back inside. I leave the bag, head to customer service, and try to get this issue resolved. I ask them to pull up the registers receipts. I tell them the exact time I was there and to check the cameras. I get a call from my husband saying he is in way too much traffic and needs to be back to work sooner than later for a meeting.
I am in walmart for 2 hours and 45 minutes. The woman never exchanged my products, so I had to exchange them. The products she was suppose to exchange, but did not. The products I left with her, just incase she wanted to double check to make sure I exchanged the exact products. I was so livid one of the young men outside, collecting the shopping carts, actually asked me if I was OK. I still have trash in my front yard.
My husband searched high and low for this receipt, but the Walmart receipt he had in his wallet, the one he thought was the one I needed, was actually for the gatorade he bought as we walked in. We pulled up bank statements to bring in. I swear to you, I will never, ever, return back to any Walmart until the day I die.
I plan on going to Walmart this evening, and passing out these coupons. Just for the chance that they may drive 5 minutes down the road to Target. Over my lifetime, I have spent tens of thousands of dollars at your establishment. Between my weekly shopping, Christmas, and just life in general, I have absolutely spent that amount.
I have found every walmart receipt I can possibly find in my home. I am checking all of them to find products I have not used yet, so my husband can return them when he gets back from work. I pay cash for everything, so thats a win for us! Your company, and the idiotic employees you hire not all of them, mind you.
I have had several great experiences with your employees. You make me sick. This employee, deserves to be fired and honestly, penalized, for her behavior.
I wish I got her name. I remembered checking, but the fury I had made absorbing information almost impossible. She is short, dark hair, glasses, beady eyes, and was working the door at approx 4: I did all my shopping at Target.
I mean, ALL of it. Even bought multiple outfits for each of my family members for our upcoming vacation. You both, equally, save me the same amount of money when I grocery shop.
The bonuses of Target, though? My favorite part though, all of their gd shopping carts work. I video taped my mom one day at a walmart by her house. I thought she was going to blow the roof off. I know how to make her laugh, so I video taped her. She went through 13 shopping carts before one worked properly. The video is almost 6 minutes long. I am trying to place an order on your website for Equate sugar free cough Drops.
I have ordered multiple bags in the past. The computer will only allow me to purchase 12 bags. I spoke to one of your agents on the computer, and he said there is a limit on how many you can order. Why do I have to place multiple orders just to order the quantity I need, and cannot find in your store. Please let me know who to call to rectify this problem. I need copies of my husbands last five pay stubs, and a copy of all benefits: I guess the next step is to go to a higher government department.
He was a devoted employee. I needed that money to support my 4 kids. I need the payroll information for a lawsuit. I will have my lawyer contact you. Hello my name is carla and well today i will comment on this since i cant get a hold of any of the CEOs or just anyone that can help me.
I have been working for your company for about 9 months and i would say store was just awesome in a ghetto are but nice helpful management. Now i transfered to El Paso Tx due to family issues and i have never been treated so badly until i got here. Now they have fired me due to 5 absences and didnt even give me a chance to fix it or explain. Now i understand is my responsibility to check on my absences but when the store is packed and literally no csm gives you permission to leave your register unless break or lunch what can i do?
On my other store you had to jave nine accurances or nine absences to be fired here four how in the world is that when i have four kids and one is autistic. Sometimes i ask myself why are they sti working for you, have no costumer service skills rude at that some are just plain evil. I barely got any hours and when i got sick there no one cared but maybe two ladies from management but because i looked pale and about to pass out in there store.
I went back to try to put my hours from pto and nothing so thats how my five absences accumalated. Ask store about me i was one of the best associates there i did everything i could as to help the customer and maintain my only source of income….
You have just lost a good employee just like more to come all because some of your management arent there to run your atores how Sam Walton wanted. I just got fired today because of something they said happened on the 9th. Today, they told me my login information was locked because my drawer was seven thousand dollars short. One, they dont evn have that much in the drawers for me to even take.
Two, there was no inestigation, police, or proof that i took anything. Three, i explained what happened that day and the manager acted like she didnt care. Two associates was at my register that day and they were loading cards, im like 3 weeks new still, so i was open to all the associates helping me.
Come to find out, they scammed me since i was new. I did not take seven thousand dollars, if i did, i wouldnt still be showing my face at walmart. Im filing a lawsuit because the correct measures werent taken prior to termination. I was wrongfully accused and there was nothing done in my defense. I was force to admit i took items that I never paid for the security guy in store number even lie saying that I money on my register was short on money he force me to said that if I confess I took some things with out paying he will just fired me he force me to even admit to do that knowing that I was under a lot of medication cause my son just had accident and lost his vision on his eye knowing I was not well and my son in ICU pediatrics.
Justice should be serve for me and family! Investigation should be done on what they did to me cause all the procedures were wrongfully done to me. Plus then forcing me to admit even searching my personal things etc. Reach me at titaniapasiecki at gmail.
Why is it that no one gets any answers to our problems here. We specially ex employees. Why is that u let them get away with what they done to us. Breaking the laws on us and lying about things please we are people and deserved answers to are issues thanks! Never Ever get the shipping pass. I work at store nicholasville Ky as a door greeter. I have been there since I got out of high school in I am mentally disabled and have to have a job coach help me, which my parents provide.
This gives me a sense of independence and a chance to be out in the communit The nicholasville store is letting most of door greeters go or letting some go work in store.
I have put in 16 years and 11 months working 2 hrs a week and to get total I have worked for Walmart for years the problem is some of your nasty Co mgrs. Get over it and yourself. There are REAL problems in the world. I work at the store in Nicholasville Ky.. I have given you everything i have to give.. Im at work on time everyday.. I come in when you need me. I have always been a good employee.
As you know walmart is changing the door greeters.. We where told that we would be offered a buyout or move to another job in the atore. There is no other job in the store im able to perform because of health issues So for me giving you almost 20 years of my life.. You should be ashamef of yourself. The last time something like this happened at walmart. This is beyond insulting.. You need to fix this bs.. They do not care about the employess or customers that work or shop there.
I just left a wal-mart store. While I was there I was being targeted by 8 people making rude comments about having my 6 pound service dog in the store.
Meanwhile a co manager said she heard everything that happened and what was said. Meanwhile I was the one she came to and said she had a problem with me. I was a innocent victim in this. She said not one word to this group of people.
And I was asked to leave the store. Not because of my dog but because I was loud in talking. Did not know this was a crime in NYS. But appartenly it is,They do not care the Managers are useless and do not care will not be going back to wal mart again.
I am very upset that when I purchased a tent on Walmart. What a terrible way to do customer service with this type of comments and service. This was a tent for graduation when I had my son in law put it up the pole collapsed. They will not refund they r doing a replacement , I explained I have no idea if and when I would use it. I asked the question that if this is defictive what is policy, I got response will need to call , to see what can be done. Beware when ordering on website about third vendor that Walmart and vendor are passing buck leaving consumer in the middle.
With a very bad taste in mouth. If u order make sure of all policy or you may get burned. I order everything online including clothes. You are now Banning me from ordering any more on Walmart. Please reconsider and allow me to buy from Walmart.
Thank you so much. I have been shopping at walmart for over 20 years and never had a problem with your products until i purchased this 70 vizio tv,i have did my research and concluded that i am not the only person to have a problem like mine with vizio i came across hundreds of complaints similar to mine.
I am appealing to Walmart to please forward this letter to the highest authority to help me remedy this issue. What ever walmart offers will be appreciated. I was unable to attach receipts,pictures and correspondence from vizio with this email but i can send in another email if requested. I am a senior citizen living in Lincoln, IL on a fixed income.
I purchased the phone because it was adamant that I have a phone due to medical emergencies. I also purchased a Product Care Plan which is my main reason in writing this letter. I have experienced extreme aggravation in dealing with various employees of your company. This has not happened — I was lied to about everything. I contacted UPS to get verification that they picked up my package.
I have attached proof of pick up from UPS. The egift was not emailed to me so I contacted them online and had a chat session with Janikka explaining to her that I am a senior, have medical emergency issues and I need to have a phone for medical emergencies — I have attached our 3 pages of correspondence also.
I need a phone in the event of a medical emergency. This has been delayed now for too long. Regarding my prior information — I contacted Asurion regarding my e-Gift which I was told was going to be sent to me today — it was not sent.
I will be taking this matter further. Please, I need someone from the corporate office to assist me. I can be reached at Kenya. Are you going to discontinue price matching to ads and online sites?
I have been at walmart for a year. These changes they made went into effect 2 months before my 1 year anniversary. I have 7 hours of pto only! What happened to all the hours and months i worked before the changes?? All their answers make no sense to me! The way i see it i, along with many others, got screwed. We basically lost all the hours worked and have to start over. In other words i have to work another full year to get one week vacation. I am supposed to get one week vacay after working one year.
He only does this stuff when the store manager is not there he think he runs the store. Hi Tina, would you like to get together so that we can tell this story. Have have tried emailing almost anyone in corporate and no one has responded but one person. Please email me so that we can talk. I am writing this for my daughter listed above. This just happened to her yesterday at texas store.
Hi Alexandra, would you like to get together so that we can tell this story. Where do I begin. I was in management for several years and I can testify that there are massive disconnects between home office and the stores.
Many managers are in over their heads and just trying to survive the never-ending storm that is Walmart. Associates could care less because the company they work for cares even less. No… The problem I am experiencing at a Walmart at this exact moment is inconsequential. And no one will until the money stops flowing. Then people will care. When it affects them personally. But, by then it will be too late. Hello, I live in a very small town, and you are about the only game in town.
We have a small Safeway, that is so high in price, I shop Walmart exclusively. I have always had to wait, in the back of the store, for my package pick up, because there is no employees around. Then I had to go track down an employee and have them call for someone to help me. This was very poor customer service, but I let it go, and never said anything about this annoying problem with WalMart.
I do not like to get people into trouble, or even get angry, but I am so very angry and frustrated, I just had to let you know what my experience was and, has been, in the past, so that maybe you would , maybe do something about this poor customer service. I apologize for the length of this email, but wanted to take you through, what transpired, yesterday, as well as, today. I purchased some items on line and was notified, via email, that my purchases were in the store in Chelan.
I could not go in to WalMart yesterday, so my sister said she was going and would pick up my package. I went on line to change the name of the pick up person. Well I called my store and they said I would have to call the 1 Walmart number, so I called that number, and told them to please change the pick up persons name.
She asked when my sister was going to pick up my package. I told the representative that my sister, was going as soon as I hung up. She told me that was fine. I gave my sister all my paper work ,and even ,my drivers license, because I have had so many problems with picking up a package at this WalMart, in the past. When my sister went to the back of the store, they sent her up front. My sister, showed, the email, from the online purchase that said my package was at the store.
The Customer Service rep called back to the back room, and was told that that person would not go check. She knew that my sister was going right away to pick them up for me and one for her. I went in today with all my paperwork and Brenda Valencia, at customer service, promptly looked in a notebook and said my package was not in the store.
When I explained to her the situation, she called Lupita up front and in the mean time called back in the back room and was informed that my packages were not in the store. Then Lupita showed up to customer service, and said I would have to have my drivers license. I had explained to Brenda, when she asked me for my license, that I forgot to get, from my sister, before I came in today, but that I had a picture i.
She told me that she was not going to give me the packages because I had no drivers license with me. So I walked away angry, so I could cool down and bit. I went back up to customer service and asked for her to call the manager. The manager on duty, asked me what was the problem, so I explained to her about yesterday and the whole situation today.
Well I get home and I looked at my paperwork, again, and had forgotten that I had paid for the orders. So I got my drivers license and returned to WalMart, and told them that I was back, because I had paid for my order. Brenda again helped me, and I asked her what would happen if a person orders, online, to pick up in the store, only has a photo i.
McDonalds was their only customer, so you had better give them good customer service, or the Company was out of business. I am sure you know, that without good, solid customer service a business is no good. I am not going to order again, from you online. I am done with that frustration. I may even start paying a bit more, and going to Safeway, or an hour away, to Wenatchee, WA to shop at Fred Meyers, and other grocers.
This is not an empty statement, I will wait and see if anything ever comes of this email to you. A whole lot of Chelan residence were against this store ever coming to Chelan, I supported you!!! I do hope that you will, please, do something about this store and the disconnection one department has with the others, and the attitude of your employees.
Oh, I did tell them that, their service, was unprofessional. This fact just seems pretty shady to me and Wal-Mart is coming in at the losing end. An email from Wal-Mart online tells me I can pick up my site-to store purchases 7 days a week between opening time 10a.
The same timeframe is not nearly true of my local Wal-Mart. On Sundays, the site-to-store section at my local Wal-Mart closes at 7 p. Yesterday, I arrived to pick up my purchase at 8pm and the site-to-store area was closed.
I write on the assumption that all Wal-Mart stores operate on the same schedule that is posted online as nothing indicates otherwise. No one is working those three hours that Wal-Mart might be paying someone to work. Is it possible someone is collecting money for those three hours Wal-Mart. Went ahead ordered 2 the mugs, and received a response back within minutes my order was ready for pickup.
Just a few short minutes later received a phone call from the store saying they no longer had the Ozark mugs, they were out. Called the store back to speak with someone of foreign accent hard to understand and he said they no longer had the items ordered.
This is after the original conformation online saying them items were ready, then an email confirming the items were ready. How can this happen? Confirmation on my account saying the items are ready, then an email saying the items are ready. I am not very happy with Walmart, especially the clerk working the online orders pickup counter in Tampa. Of course it is our word against them but they did refund the money for the tire that they forgot to give us.
So my husbands LIFE was risk for their mistake that they hind behind their policy!!! I have spent five hours trying to obtain a list of empty Wal Mart buildings for lease or for sale. I work for walmart going on 19 years 9 yrs at asset protection I have partner we just hired and she is good are, Ap overview show we are high risk and should have 2 Ap they are only letting us have one are little town of Carlsbad nm has double in size from 33, to 77, I would like to know how this is working this way when every other store in are market is getting what their Ap overview showing.
Pleas help get an answer. Store All levels of management at this store are lacking in professionalism and no one is being held accountable for there lack of leadership or general failure. All of the daytime supports and assistants are simply failing and lying to cover it up and pushing there failures on the shoulders of there associates. The entire cap process is failing at this store because cap team 1 and 2 can not and donor do there job.
They are poorly trained and do not stock or execute there tasks properly. Sexual relationships run rampant at each store, especially among the salaried management with each other. Next thing you know is your cordial work relationship becomes an emotional affair and then eventually a sexual affair.
Both have been involved in a sexual affair since the begining of the year. Yet another family broken up by a womanizing manager who preys on woman that works under him at Walmart. Wow such great ethics. I thought I lost my cell phone in Walmart Friday. I was worn out from the shopping, every part of my body ached, I could hardly breathe. Thet had to sit in a chair while they checked me out, unloaded and put my groceries in my car. I was on verge of crying. Then I got to my car and low and behold, there was my phone plugged into the car charger.
It was such a relief. I hate going to Walmart, as the store is too big and it is very hard for me with my disabilities. Plus they move things around. I called the store and spoke to the manager, thanked her, to and asked her to thank all the other compassionate employees who helped me. They could not have been nicer or kinder. Thank you to Walmart Picayune. MS store for your kindness and help.
I would like a written policy on the purchase of alcohol. I was refused sale today because my daughter was with me who could not provide an ID showing over the age of This is not legal. I was told it was to keep me from 3rd party sales.
I was buying beer. My purchase, my money. What I do with it after I leave the store if my responsibility, not walmarts. So if I had a 5 year old, I would have to leave that child at home of I wanted to shop from walmart? Because i was told that at any age it would be denied.
Also, there is nothing posted saying that everyone in your shopping party must have proof of age, 21 or older. When I Googled Walmarts policy, it looks as if lots of others have had the same problem. Maybe its time people get together and take walmart to court? When I returned home I realized that I was missing an item that I purchased, so I immediately called the number on my receipt.
An associate answered and I introduced myself and my issue of my item missing and asked if he would please check if my item was left behind at register To my surprise on his response, so I asked for his name and he the associate hung up the phone. Disrespected and furious, I called back the number. When I told her of my missing item her response was that I would have to come to the store tomorrow and look at footage to verify if or if not the missing item was placed in my cart.
I then address the issue with the first associate who answered on my first call to the store. She replied once again that there was nothing she could do and reminded me to just come in to address the missing item.
To whom it may concern, I am writing the letter to inform you of your overbearing customer service representatives of Walmart as well as possible profiling of their customers. This is a letter to document 2 incidents that I feel do not meet standard customer service guidelines and policies. The first incident occurred when my wife and myself were asked to show a receipt of our purchase by a greeter at the door prior to exiting on Tuesday April 20th approximately 2pm at the San Tan Valley, AZ Walmart located at the intersection of Hunt Hwy and Gary Rd.
We feel this is profiling of Walmart customers as the reason for the stop was due to our soda we purchased was not in a bag.
As I requested to discuss this with a manager, we observed other customers exiting the store with items not bagged and not asked to show receipts. In an effort to prove our point, we showed an old receipt, from a different Walmart, to the manager and she looked at the receipt for less than a second and said OK all is well. Upon returning home my wife called the manager of the store, Ralph Ikpelue is the manager listed on the receipt, to discuss this matter and asked him view the video tape of this harassment.
As of April 28 there has been no follow up provided to us by Ralph. The second incident occurred Thursday April 28th approximately 8: I was returning some dog treats as they were manufactured in China and we do not feel comfortable providing these treats to our pets. Without my authorization she proceeded to scan my card and I was informed the refund transaction could not be completed without agreeing to this procedure. It seems all of the folks for these incidents have an answer for everything to cut down their customers.
No one can assure me their system cannot be hacked and steal their customers information but this is a conversation for a later time. Again I believe the attitude of the customer service representative is not representative of standard customer service policies. I would like to close by stating this letter will be sent to the manager of the San Tan Valley AZ Walmart, Walmart corporate offices and various customer review websites. It seems to me, based on these two incidents, that the training of the floor managers and customer service representatives is lacking and insufficient to providing standard customer service.
As stated at Walmart. To return or exchange items without a receipt, you are required to present a valid government issued photo ID. I started in December of at Walmart Store I was placed in the Garden center and worked hard to earn my hours and i learned to use some power-equipment and was still in the process of learning more.
I had called in one week due to being sick, I called in one day, but i had forgotten about the number, and called the store directly. I was told it would be taken care of. The next few days I found out it was counted as a no-call, thus giving me 4 occurrences.
