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!

"*Half of the workers can not speak english." First of all not everybody needs to speak English you racist punk

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

Actually a pretty cool store.. Avoid the back

I don't call Spencer's The Store Of Doom for nothing!

3 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...

As much as I dislike Walmart, I think that Kmart is truly the most depressing chain in the US. How it's still around, I have no idea.

The only reason why they're still around is because of their website. - PerfectImpulseX

4 Home Depot

Why is this store on the list?! Its awesome!

I saw a dead mouse there, creepy.

So boring. I have to go there today

A total rip off, I prefer Lowe's than this store...

5 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

Everything is out of stock in there, And they have small choices to shop from, Big Lots? More like a big waste of space...

Food like crackers are always stale even if they are in date, stores always messy. Furniture does not last long.

6 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...

Why kid friendly workers will do that racist thing? Like come on! - Gabo147

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.

My dad saw that too. I like toy r us when I was 5, but now it is quite rubbish. - Gabo147

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.)

I'm a kid and when I went to Toys r Us there were little midgets everywhere! Some were crying and some were being chased around while I just slowly walked behind my dad. It was so awkward but I'm glad that I wasn't a lonely crying kid. Poor kids can't be occupied by their own parents.

7 Victoria's Secret

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

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.

GARBAGE. I agree with Dutty. The PINK stores are bad. And you too, Trivium! Hot Topic rocks! VS sucks!

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

8 Dollar Tree

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

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!

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.

I agree with the person under the 1st comment, admit it you can't go into the dollar tree without buying any crap


Ever since a store opened here my parents keep shopping here, but the food is awfully boring and just cheap substituting. Their instant noodles taste like cardboard and turned me off them. I don't care about cheap things; I'd just go to any store with leading brands and buy them, not ripoffs.

Oh god it's the Aldi snobs, like my cousin when she was 11.
Hello Kevin the Carrot great Coca-Cola parody last Christmas.

I go shopping every thursday, and there's always one shop I avoid. Aldi, there products made me sick and their employees insult me when I do go there (occasionally) sure, they save you a few bucks but the product is not worth the cheap price!

Cheap ripoff store

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 like Best Buy because they have the best selection of skylanders no joke...please don't hurt me

The Contenders

11 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


The clothes in there are horrible. I went in to get some new clothes.. It was just PINK! ASDA really NEEDS to put some variety in it. Would never shop there AGAIN. :/

What even is this store no ones heard of it so it must be bad

That's so not true asda is a shop in the walmart family we got in the uk but it's my favourite shop ever they don't have mean people but some of the employee's looked like they did crystal meth

I never heard of this

13 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.

14 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

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

15 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!

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

Thift store quality, extremely high prices

16 99 Dollar Store

Do you mean 99 cent store?

From fake brands to really disturbing stuff.

Its 99 cent not dollar

17 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.

Also they had a One Direction bear! I LOVE One Direction?! Thank you build-a-bear for making my dreams come true. :')

No point of it

18 Blockbuster Video

It trash there four dead mouse in there

19 Office Depot

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

20 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.

Do they even feed the fish? Why are they dead?

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.

21 Payless

I just got shoes from Payless, and the soles fell apart and they're pretty much destroyed now. It's only been a little less than 2 weeks! Not coming back.

Yes, there shoes fall apart after a week

Crappiest shoes and walmart

Mine didn't

22 Justice

This store treats girls like they are princeSses or something like that

I'm scared of this place because you may be subject to a data breach there.

I got a backpack from them and it was breaking and the employee just ripped off the part where it was broken.

Well I've never been to justice but it sounds like a good place

23 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.

24 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.

25 McDonald's

The damn burger always gotta look like somebody punched it!

I love this store so much

Hm this person who added this might have some sight problems.

Not a store! It's a restaurant!
