Worst Places to Shop

This list is for the worst places when it comes to shopping.

The Top Ten

1 Wal Mart

*It is a dirty store.
*People are rude.
*You never could never find any thing you are looking for.
*Half of the workers can not speak english.
*Non of the workers know what anything is in the store.
* You could save a lot of money but you can't live better.

I would call that extremely poor management. Which lets face it, everywhere has these issues anymore.

Ah, Walmart. The place that has well over 50 checkout lanes but only uses maybe 4, has no control over their customers (people who change diapers on the produce, crap in the isles, cook meth in a backpack, and leave raw meat to rot anywhere they like), has an entire website devoted to its stereotypical clientele, and every black-friday lets one of its workers get trampled to death by psychotic mobs of said customers.

move into town, put everyone else out of business, then jack up prices. so damn crowded you wish you could run over about half of them. Everybody brings their whole dang family with them!

It seems pretty bad and I'm glad it's not in my area yet! - RaccoonCartoon

2 Spencer's

I have to agree with all of you. They have some vulgar stuff but in most Spencer's stores put all the really vulgar stuff in the back - Toptenner106

Actually a pretty cool store.. Avoid the back

Wear a shirt from Spencer's to school, you'll be suspended so quickly. - Catacorn

Can't find anything

The worst

4 Big Lots

Regular Price. Bad Quality. Small Variety.

I hate big lots. Once I was walking around the store with a bag of marshmallows and dropped it and the one worker argued at me and ALMOST kicked me out of the store

I saw crappy games on the checkout, which I don't know if that reflects the store - bjinmaro64

More like pig lots.

5 KMart

KMart is just plane boring! Usually items and it is so small, the cashiers are slow! They take forever on scanning stuff, what if you gotta go somewhere quick! When I first went to this place when I was young, I look around strangely and I wanted to stay in the car. Never want to go there EVER!

I hate the blue light guy!

They say you save on everything put the one and only time I went there everything I wanted was at least $30!

There's DUMB and there's k-mart DUMB!

often looks dirty, tired, with
not-very-polite sales clerks at your service...

Wow take this place down! It is a literal nightmare! Toys R Us should've been higher but who cares?

6 Victoria's Secret

My granny is afraid to go in Hot Topic, but I'm afraid to go in Victoria's Secret - Trivium

If your afraid to go inside Victoria's Secret, then Miranda Kerr is waiting for you to get dragged in and a pile of bras and panties will be swarming all over you.

One time my mom went into Victoria's secret because she needed a bra but she couldn't even look in there because it was so scary

I personally do not like it. There are many open windows and I don't really want random people and my crushed knowing I shop there. It is over perfumed and bright pink.

7 Toys r Us

my dad once went there and when he got in line they said "oh sorry this line is closed" but they let the person behind him pay for their stuff.

my dad is black by the way... - bendanna

In my opinion, Toys r us sucks. Once when I went there, there were kids all over the place, whining and screaming and the staff does not stop this or them from ripping up all of the boxes. I fell because there was a toy on the floor. There are not many staff though, and the lines are always full for the checkout. Everything is overpriced. A barbie doll can be 35 dollars, when the same can be at another store like Target and Walmart for about 15 or twenty dollars. They never seem to have any sales. Once a kid peed on the floor at the one in our mall and nobody bother to clean it up. It smelt horrible at the first floor of the mall. There people there and rude. Parents don't control their kids and there are no staff. This store sucks.

WOW, this place IS a dump. I'm so proud to not have one in my town. Like preschool but more dumpy and WORSE THAN EVER. I have too many awful dreams about this place too. One of them was about a Toys R Us that I was locked in overnight and sold only meats like sausages and baloney. There was only one butcher in the store, but didn't harm me. I've had more, but this is the one I'd love to tell you about. This is also my sister's favorite store (which it shouldn't) because they sell Zootopia toys (she's a fan of Zootopia.)

Types of kids in Toys R Us
1. The beggar
2. The king of annoyance
3. The tantrum throwers
4. The starers
5. The rule breaker
6. The whiners
7. The crybabies - MinecraftHater

8 Dollar Tree

Their toys are some of the worst in the world! They are made of cheap quality material and break in a few weeks or less! I own two "fashion dolls" from there and their heads, arms, and legs pop off too easily!

Everything cost $1. that's Great! Except after a week it breaks and you have to buy a new one.

I could never seem to go in there without buying crap.

If you want a lot of things that will cost you an arm and a leg then I guess we should shop elsewhere.

How do they stay in business? - bjinmaro64

9 JC Penney

Jcpenny reminds me a lot of Sears

Clothes are extremely high

I walk in and walk out

I know there employees are over worked and unappreciated

Who really shops there

Can I get a price check for these jean someone ripped the tag off!

Oh yea these one to and this one a customer wants a bigger sizes!

Nothing at that store cost a penny we should sue them for false advertising

Wait sue. Are you sure the founders first name wasn't penny

10 Best Buy

Tried to buy something that was on a table with a sign that said 50% off, and it was open box that was tapped all back together, the check out person and then the supervisor would not sell it to us at that price that it should have been with discount, but would give us teen dollars the original price, even though it was marked with a different price right on the box. It they can put out a sign saying half off, the make up what ever they want. What terrible customer service, avoid the Lynnwood Wa. Wal-Mart at all costs, they treat people terribly. Oh and buy the way they also told me my debit card was declined and I have to pay with cash, even though there was nothing wrong with my card, per my bank.

The store set up is very nice, but my problem are the people who work here. They are rude, condescending, and mostly - even if you're already giving them 1,000 they will try to sell you every annoying warranty, safety plan, and anything to cost you more up under the sun. It's so annoying.

So good I could eat a tree and then go to best unicorn and not get good like best buy

I tried to return a game, but I think they said it was "too early" to do that - bjinmaro64

The Newcomers

? Ralphs

The Contenders

11 Sam's Club

I had one guy open my return. It was really funny to be honest. The employee asked me if I opened the box and I told him no. I left my license (ID) in the car and was told I needed it for the return. When I came back the guy said so you said you didn't open it and I said yeah I didn't open it. Well this guy got so excited and ripped it open as a child opening a gift on Christmas. I just stood wondering what the heck this employee was doing as he had a big grin on his eager eyed face. I had to help the guy with the box in fear he was going to drop it because he wouldn't slow down. His evil child like face expression dropped after he pulled off the plastic and looked at it. He gave me my money for the return as I tried not to laugh at whatever he had done. I still don't get what he was doing. This experience has me thinking twice if I should continue to shop there. Sam's Club. Maybe your employees need a break from time to time before another box gets violated again. Ouch!

I don't have a ID.

12 World Market

If you don't know what it is, it's a store with sodas, candy, chips, and goodies all around the world. I love the store, BUT there's one big PROBLEM. THERE'S ONLY ONE CHECKOUT! And there's a lot of people there everyday! Hope they get more checkout's - Toptenner106

The World Market? Take that off this list! The world market is the best! It has stuff from all over the world for cheapish!

The world market is awesome

The world market has they cool stuff, totally mlg - bjinmaro64

13 Dillards

Dillard's is like a thrift store. Most of their clothes they sell have been returned. Their's always a yellow label on almost all their clothing meaning they were purchased before.

DIllards is so expensive especially compared to Charlotte Russe Love culture. And forever 21

Thift store quality, extremely high prices

You get so obsessed with saying the name that eventually you can't say anything else. Dillard's! Dillard's! Dillard's!

14 Office Depot

No good back home be4 the police come and get the ceetos

15 Build-A-Bear Workshop

I hate this place. The stuffing is everywhere and you have wild kids running around.

So many little kids are out of control and their parents simply don't care.

No point of it

£30 for a teddy bear!

16 Petco

This is not a Petco story but Pet Smart and Petco are partners right? Anyways I got a fish tank for Christmas when I was 11 and we went to get fish from Pet Smart. In the span of a few weeks every fish we got has died even though I took good care of them. We got sick of buying fish and then later gave up on Pet Smart.

ANY place that sells live creatures as if they were products should be shut down immediately... Or at least boycotted...

Where else are you gonna get reptiles, birds, rabbits, hamsters, or fish as pets

My Petcos around here are great, though I have heard many horror stories about it... I still prefer mom and pop stores though.

18 Albertson's

I work at Reasors, which bought the last Albertson's location in my city. So that's why Albertson's is #15, because we assimilated it into OBLIVION.

19 Primark

the stuffs just cheap crap

Seriously?! Apart from the Emoji crap, this shop is amazing.

Best store

It's all cheap and the material is so thin - there's no point buying a t-shirt for £3 if it only survives in the washing machine 3 times. If you're looking for cool, colourful clothes that will actually last, try Superdry instead. - Entranced98

20 Target

What are you talking about "only clothes"?!? Are you like blind or something? When I WALK into a store I see, movies, random stuff (like the 3 dollar stuff), and clothes. Walk to the right, and you have food and house stuff. TARGETS THE BEST DUDE!

Dude, Target is like, The best store ever

It's an everything store and whoever put this on the list better take it off because it's the best store ever

What, This store rocks. Walmart is stupid. Target is good but they have no large Wilton section. Whatever. 😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁
