Some positive news – even if you hate them – Walmart is reopening some of its stores in Japan. This is good news if for no other reason that JOBS!
The earthquake and tsunami that devastated parts of Japan damaged 24 of Wal-Mart's 371 stores in the country, but 12 of them were open for business on Monday, and the retailer plans to open the others as soon as possible. Two of the stores were completely covered in mud, but workers at the other 22 locations set up shop in the parking lots shortly after the disaster to give away bottled water and noodles and sell some limited items.
Horrible Horrible Horrible!
