I recently visited three different super Walmart centers in Las Vegas.
Wow. Their shelves are fully stocked. They have so much more different merchandise than the Pahrump store. I always say Walmart couldn’t care less about Pahrump.
Walmart is also building a new super center just on the other side of the mountain. Gee, what happened to our new store they promised in 2009? They claim the economy stopped it. Well, the traffic has not been reduced at the Pahrump store.
A couple months ago I called the Pahrump store manager to give her an accommodation for an employee. I had to leave a message to call me back — 24 hours later I still had no call. So I called the district manager in Las Vegas to let him know. Lo and behold, the Pahrump manager called me.
A couple weeks later I stopped at the store and asked the employee if she heard that I called. She advised me “no.”
Sad but true. I mentioned it to a department head and her reply was, “That does not surprise me, nobody likes the store manager.”
Several of us decided to share rides and shop at Target in Las Vegas. Sad, because that takes sales tax out of Nye County.
