Walmart is an interesting place. Ever since its start, it’s been where people go to score a broad range of goods at low prices. But it’s also gained a reputation for drawing in some… interesting people, for lack of a better word. Even Walmart staff themselves has made jokes during cold weather encouraging people to wear two pairs of pajamas.
But it’s not all about people in various stages of undress. At Walmart, you’ll also see individuals in bizarre costumes and even with wild animals. Some store locations are open 24 hours a day, which means it attracts all the weird people who come out in the wee hours of the night. Then, of course, are the news headlines that make you think “That could only happen at Walmart.” Unsurprisingly, they usually involve the cops getting called.
But as much as we laugh at them, most of us still think that Walmart is a pretty handy place to go when needing some cough syrup at 11 o’clock at night or a couple of cheap notebooks. And whenever we hit the store, we keep one eye open for the weird, wacky, and wonderful people that we might just see there.
