Walmart is an interesting place.
By revenue, Walmart is the world’s largest company. It turned over approximately $480 billion in 2016 according to the Fortune Global 500 list.
Take this for a mind-blowing stat – if Walmart were a country, it would be the 26th largest economy in the world.That would put it above countries such as Austria, Hong Kong and Singapore (and of course hundreds more).
It’s no wonder the store is doing so well financially, it’s always filled with bargains that many eager shoppers are happy to search for.
In a typical Walmart Neighbourhood Store, you can expect to find around 29,000 items up for grabs. If you go to a bigger Supercentre though, you have the luxury of even greater choice – these stores stock up to 142,000 items. WOW.
The shops are massive with a seemingly endless supply of goods.
Hawaii is the only state not to have one of Walmart’s ‘supercentres’. The biggest of these can be found in Crossgates Commons, New York. This humungous store is 260,000 square feet (24,000 square meters), spread over two floors.
Wise isn’t everything though, as the busiest store is a smaller one. In 2006, the busiest in the world was the one in Rapid City, South Dakota.
Have a guess at what the store’s biggest selling item was in 2014…
The answer – bananas! People literally went bananas for them. It’s no surprise really that such a dietary staple would be a top-seller from Walmart when you consider that 90% of all Americans live just 15 minutes (or under) from a Walmart.
Love it or hate it, Walmart’s are filled with some very interesting products ranging from produce to the latest technology. If you can think it, they probably sell it at Walmart for a reasonable price.
Aside from its weird and wonderful products, Walmart has achieved a cult status in the internet community. Why?
Because Walmart tends to attract some interesting customers…
We don’t exactly know what attracts these odd customers to the store. But many believe it’s the all the one-stop shopping they can do, the cheap prices and the fluorescent lighting. Apparently, it attracts customers to the store like moths to the flame.
I mean who can blame them really, it’s hardy as though Walmart is a luxurious shopping experience, far from it. It’s cheaply priced goods made for the mass market. With this kind of atmosphere I guess people just feel like they can relax a little, you know, really just be themselves…
Whatever the reason, Walmart attracts a certain kind of person. The kind of person you can easily spot in a photo… Why? Because for whatever reason, they’re always the center of attention in said photo.
It’s almost like Walmart is the petri dish of humanity.
Whenever you’re in Walmart, you can watch people from all walks of life mingling around, doing whatever they want, like no one is around to see them.
No seriously, it makes a fun game. Hide behind one of the isles and find a small gap where you can see to the other side. Then, like a true nature observer, wait and watch the finest creatures known to this planet intact in their natural habitat.
I’m still not entirely sure why some people think Walmart is the perfect place to stop giving a damn, but it’s really fascinating to see.
Don’t believe me?
Here are a few hilarious but crazy photos that capture these strange Walmart customers perfectly.
Are my eyes deceiving me or is this guy actually wearing hooves on his feet?
Oh it’s just a normal guy horsing around Walmart… Nothing to see here!
Got a nice long mane too, neighhh!
Nothing says going to Walmart more than a stylish braided mullet. Looking good you funky cowboy!
Mullets are quite rare nowadays however if you still have a mullet, you probably shop at Walmart.
Mystery Meat Section
Maybe when you go to Walmart, wear a shirt. I mean I’m all for feeling comfortable in your own skin and shopping environments that make us feel at ease but PLEASE. This is too much.
I know it may be hot but it could be a vest at the very least!
This woman clearly doesn’t care as she wonders round the fridge and freezer section baring all for the innocent Walmart customers.
She’s as bare as the meat in front of her!
I’m not sure wearing a long vest top and a knicker and diaper combo is the best look, even when your shopping at Walmart!
But this woman clearly sees nothing wrong with this look as she casually strolls round the shop in her cart.
Sorry hunny but that is a top and not a dress. Good job she looks like she’s headed for the clothes, maybe she’s going to buy the part of her outfit she forgot to put on.
Thicker Skin Needed
This is absolutely scandalous and typical Walmart. Has nobody mentioned the fact that you can see straight through her leggings.
Sometimes you need thicker leggings while your wearing rude knickers. Otherwise your just advertising your love for, well, that.
She loves *ick and we love Walmart!
Have you ever seen somebody so American. This guy has absolutely no shame.
I wonder if he’s shopping for wax and razors? They’re on aisle four!
Training Wheels Needed
Those shoes wouldn’t be my first choice for shopping at Walmart, but each to their own I suppose.
Im trying to think of a suitable time to sport these shoes, and I’m really struggling. All I know is that they weren’t designed for pushing a shopping trolley round Walmart.
WW: Walmart Wrestling
Yep, just when you have thought you’d seen it all. Walmart provide a wrestling ring for their shoppers. And it has put a halt to their shopping as they sit around watching.
Sometimes Walmart likes to provide its own in store entertainment… That would make your weekly shop a lot more interesting!
Going To The Beach
Just because it’s summer, doesn’t mean you have to be beach ready at Walmart!
Im not even too sure that this guys shorts are even suitable for the beach. They look like dirty white boxer shorts.
PUT SOME CLOTHES ON YOU CRAZY HUMANOID!
All Dressed Up With No Place To Go
We all like making an effort when we go out. You know, do our hair nice, put on a bit of make up and some nicer clothes so that we don’t end up looking like one of those people in a compilation of photos of weirdos at a discount store…
That being said, I think this lady has gone one step too far when taking pride in her appearance.
That’s a little too much foundation full stop if you ask me!
Make up wipes are on isle 12!
This is absolutely grim, he isn’t even doing it on the sly. Im not sure Walmart workers hygiene is on point judging by this picture.
I hope he doesn’t go on to help in the raw food section of Walmart. I don’t want extra flavouring!
That’s one way to keep your kid from walking off I suppose…
It actually stops your kid from picking up random toys and sweets as well. In fact, this woman is a complete genius – may we all physically restrain our children! Wait no… definitely no.
I Like Short Shorts
How are people leaving their house dressed like this, it is truly mental.
We’ve all seen/heard of the funny idea that two hands either side of a person’s…rear… spell out LOL. But to wear some tiny shorts with a weird picture of the same idea is a bit too far if you ask me.
I could have done without seeing that…
That’s Not A Dress
Ahh it’s diaper lady’s cousin! A fellow I-will-only-wear-half-an-outift-gal.
Maybe the next time you go out you should put a real dress on that actually covers you…
Or at least not prop your leg up like that, it shows too much!
This woman doesn’t seen too fazed by the fact that the whole of her body is on show though. Passers by may be a little more bothered.
Knickers And Short
Im not sure if she forgot which to put on first or she actually thinks that this looks good, either way, this cannot happen again.
I mean, please put some real pants on…
Oh and Dennis the Menace would like his t-shirt back too.§
I Was Thinking That Too
If your that bald I suppose you become very attached to what little hair you have…
But this guy really is clinging on to what he has left. Let it go pal! He looks like one of those freaky voodoo dolls, not a good look!
So there you have it, Walmart is America’s biggest store and most likely one that you visit fairly often too (and who can blame you, they do some darn good deals!). The added bonus of going to Walmart? You get to see some funny sights such as the people in our collection above. Happy shopping people!
