    They might well be but I have never heard of them and I am not sure that many in the UK or Europe would know them, unless they are behind other stores. Just like you would not know that Shoprite is the biggest store here where I live.

    A lesson in American shopping culture.

    Walmart is an American shopping store giant that specializes in cut rate prices. They have grown so large that they use their mega buying power to drive down the cost of the goods they sell. For instance, they started a $4.00 USD prescription program a few years ago. They negotiated cut rate prices on about 500 or 600 different medications with the drug companies and offer those medicines for $4.00 a month.

    On the flip side they have a long history of being accused of providing poor health insurance, low wages, poor work place environment, and mediocre benefits to their employees. In America there are Walmart lovers and haters.

    If you would like to see the type of raging debate the company has created in America, visit www.peopleofwalmart.com This site makes fun of customers of Walmart stores in some of the poorer areas of America.

    I didn't know that and only know Asda by their TV adverts as we do not have one here. I always thought Asda was Yorkshire based or is that Morrisons? It doesn't matter anyway I just wanted to know who or what it was, which has been answered.
