Most Iconic Brands across the US

Whenever Web Watch travels around the country, we always try to “go local” whenever possible.  We can eat at an Applebee’s or a McDonald’s almost anywhere… but we’ll go out of our way to chow down at an IN-N-OUT BURGER or grab a beer at the WYNKOOP BREWERY because, well, we can’t get that stuff locally.

Well, we could if we put some effort into the project, but you know what we mean.  When you travel, you want to be like a native.  If that means drinking sweet tea while in the South, or grabbing some BBQ in Texas, having a lobster roll in Maine — well, by golly, that’s what we’re going to do.

Still relevant: Millennials love to shop at the mall

Sure, Robin Sparkles may have made LET’S GO TO THE MALL a big hit in Canada, but that was a long time ago.

When was the last time that YOU, Web Watch reader, went to the mall on your own just to wander around?

Chances are, you haven’t.  Most malls and major mall retailers appear to be losing retail sales — except Apple Stores — primarily due to online retailing.   But should malls still worry?

Wal-Mart refuses to refund $2.90; throws couple in jail (charges were later dropped)

Chicken Head Mask

Wal-Mart has a policy of having “greeters” at the front door of all their stores.

One of the jobs that the greeters and security staff are tasked with is to double-check receipts to ensure that everything that is being carried out has been paid for per the receipt.

Mary Hill Bonin and her husband are suing Wal-Mart for the Wal-Mart staff doing their job.

Unfortunately, it’s the Wal-Mart staff that allegedly appears to have acted inappropriately in this case.  All Mary and “Ricky” wanted to do was buy $2.90 worth of chicken necks.  According to the Wal-Mart security guard, the chicken neck was being shoplifted – that is, being taken out of the store without having been paid for.
