First of all, the Newport Walmart is the convenience store of Walmarts. It has a terrible grocery section (only canned goods and frozen junk), clothing? you buy your clothing at Walmart?? If you want this country to stay the most powerful nation in the world, if you want to have a good job someday, it would be best for you to buy all those things off craigslist, thrift stores, or pay a little more at local electronics stores, rather than support shipping American jobs overseas
