RE: Sam's Club's BBQ Ribs
Ellen - My guess is that I will hear nothing. Incidently, I also wrote complaining about the exterior appearance of their Superstore in our town. I wrote directly to the President in Arkansas..Ellen...Did you hear from him? Well, neither did I. I then went to our Mayor and he got the City Manager to write, too. Then I went to our local paper and ironically another resident had also written an article about the same thing. They published both mine and his in the same edition.
The end result, without any response from WalMart, was that they threw down some mulch and called it a day. So, I'm fairly certain those new ribs are here to stay. I have to agree it seems like a labor saving issue. It is kind of interesting because they already have the butchers there so what's the big deal with continuing to make them on the premises.
Walmart stores do not have butchers down here in this area (Central Florida). I was told that the Meatpackers Union wanted to organize Walmart so they simply have all the meats fabricated off their premises; no need for butchers. It's all sent in packaged, priced up and ready to go to anyone but me...I shop at Publix for meat.
