Urban Outfitters Has Its Own Version Of Trashgate

Just a week ago, the world learned that in addition to Walmart, H&M stores (in NYC at least) destroy unsold clothes instead of donating the perfectly good, unused items to charity and those in need. Disgusting? Yes. H&M released a statement claiming this would never happen again, but not only have they recently repeated theMore »


H&M Clothing Trash Scandal Update—Something’s Still Fishy

Shame, H&M, shame. Last week we learned that both the trend-forward retailer and Wal-Mart engage in the odd and wasteful practice of destroying unsold merchandise, and throwing it in the trash. Both companies scrambled to come up with apologetic statements, a rep for H&M vowing that it was an anomalous error that wouldn’t reoccur: “It… More »


Not Cool: H&M And Wal-Mart Trash Unsold Clothes

Where does unsold fashion merchandise go to die? In an ideal world, it would go to charity. For H&M and Wal-Mart, it apparently gets slashed so it’s unwearable, and then chucked in the garbage. One New Yorker made this sad discovery when she happened upon tons of black trash bags filled with H&M clothing ruined… More »


Cheapskate: Walmart

I have a confession to make. I’m a little obsessed with Norma Kamali’s line for Walmart. I’ve bought several of the well-made pieces this year, and I am constantly checking the site for new additions. I don’t know how I missed the Sleeping Bag Jacket, which Erin has been sporting rather stylishly lately. Even though… More »


Get Your Hard Candy Fix At Walmart

In August, we heard cult ’90s makeup brand Hard Candy was coming to Walmart stores at lower prices. Well, the time to paint your nails funky colors and wear matching jelly rings has arrived. Hard Candy lipsticks, glosses, eye shadows, concealers, and, yes, nail polish, are available now. The products have retained their cute packaging… More »


For The Frugalista: Wal-Mart Caskets

I’m not going to lie — I like Wal-Mart. Sure, I prefer Target, but there’s something fascinating about Wal-Mart. I mean, I bought a t-shirt there the other day for $3. Three bucks! That’s, like, a sandwich. Anyway, thanks to the crappy economy, Wal-Mart is the go-to shopping spot for many Americans, whether they’re looking… More »


WTF? Cutting In Line At Walmart Could Get You 15 Years In Prison

Heather Ellis, a college honor student in Kennett, MO, is facing 15 years in prison for an incident three years ago in which she was accused of cutting in front of someone in a Walmart checkout line. Like many people have done and do, Ellis and her cousin split up to find the shortest line,… More »


Syphilis Test Gets North Carolinians Walmart Or McDonald’s Gift Cards

Rates of syphilis in Forsyth, NC have tripled in one year, so health officials there have come up with a novel idea to entice people to get tested. Folks who undergo testing are awarded with a $10 gift card to either Walmart or McDonald’s. Now, I know people need some kind of incentive to get… More »


New Favorite Blog: The People Of WalMart

Walmart’s commercials have gotten awfully slick lately. The one above is a real tearjerker that begs the question—do these people really shop at Walmart? Maybe, but just compare them to the folks spotted at the (vaguely evil) bargain megastore on my new favorite blog, People of Walmart. I bet the people at Look At ThatMore »


Hard Candy Nail Polish Set To Make Comeback

Remember Hard Candy? It was the nail polish brand of the late ’90s, successfully marketing funky nail colors like green, silver and frosty blue. The must-have brand was a middle and high school status marker—if you wore Hard Candy (or better yet, had a collection of bottles) you told the world that you cared enough… More »


Miley Cyrus & Max Azria For Walmart Is A Lotta ‘Meh’

Good thing we didn’t expect much. Pop star Miley Cyrus teamed up with Max Azria — designed for BCBG, Herve Leger, and Max Azria — to design a line for Walmart and the results are epically mall worthy. Shrunken vests? Check! Tie dye tanks? Obvi! Hipster plaid? Got it! Basically, the line is completely inoffensive… More »


If Sarah Palin Shopped For Her Campaign Clothes At Walmart…

Politico reported that the Republican National Committee has spent more than $150,000 on clothes and accessories for Sarah Palin and her family since she became the party’s vice presidential candidate in late August. This handsome allowance included spending sprees worth $49,425.75 at Saks Fifth Avenue, $75,062.63 at Neiman Marcus, and $4716.40 on hair and makeup. More »


Walmart Sprays Summer’s Eve

If you thought douching with Lysol was hard on your ladyparts, take a gander at what Walmart suggest you use: a pressure cleaner. Talk about rode hard and put away wet! On their Canadian website, the chain retailer (accidentally?) added the wrong product picture to their “Summer’s Eve Feminine Spray Ultra-Extra Strength.” While our girl… More »

Wal-Mart: Always Low Prices, Finally An Inkling Of Human Decency

Last week we wrote about Wal-Mart employee Debbie Shank, who was struck by a truck and suffered severe brain damage and whose medical expenses were covered by her Wal-Mart insurance. The chain sued for reimbursement of $400,000+ after Shank won a settlement against the truck company which was responsible for her accident. Today the mega-chain… More »


Yet Another Reason Why We Shop At Target

Target is awesome, and not just because they have cheap, cute clothes designed by normally-out-of-our-price-range big names like Jovovich-Hawk and Luella Bartley. They also rule because they don’t screw over their employees in the most evil way possible. Wal-Mart, which, frankly, has some of the worst clothing you could possible buy at a… More »
