The Krogers around Louisville are much higher on food that Walmart is...and that is for the exact same product...I've never had any issues at Walmart. Again, I only go there for oil and everything but food, but that is only because Kroger is right by my house. You can't beat their oil prices...going to an auto parts store to pay more just seems ridiculous regardless of how you feel about the place.
I am likely the odd one out. I don't hate Wal Mart. For the few years I lived in rural Pennsylvania, my erroneous dislike for Wal Mart turned into an appreciation. I could get a decent selection of quality oil at a no game playing price, every day. I found like prices for non-auto maintenance items also. And I found Wal Mart's food section to sell some nice specialty foods at a good price.
No Wal Mart hater here.
Personally have no great love for WalMart, but certainly no hate either. In our small (20000) town, if you don't want to shop what I call boutique shops, you are stuck with Wally World. Don't buy much groceries there, as there 2 other stores that are as good or better on food prices. But do buy most all oil and filters there. Always have a good selection. Well unless you are wanting a specific type, but for me I am flexible.
They are almost fully self check out now, only I think one full service check stand. But I have gotten to like that.
You notice that too huh. Supertech is slowly matching manufacturer prices. It use to be 13 bucks a jug. Now it’s almost 20 bucks if not more.As bad as Walmart is, they sometimes have oil in stock and at a decent price.
I was in my local Walmart this morning picking up some sundries. Deodorant, shampoo and such.
I decided to check out the alleged bare shelves in the motor oil area. They weren’t bare however, shelf space dedicated to motor oil has decreased. They had some Castrol 5W40 Euro, Mobil 1 0W40 Euro, Valvoline 5W40 Euro, Pennzoil Euro L 5W30, and QuakerState 5W40 Euro.
The price for the Quaker State 5W40 Euro was very good so, I bought some.
5qt. Jug Quaker State 5W40 Euro = $21.48
1 qt. Bottle Quaker State 5W40 Euro = $5.38
Super Tech Advanced Full Synthetic is ridiculously over priced. Pritzker🤦♂️
Super bonus points for the correct spelling of that place up north.Outside of Xichigan, Ohio, and Indiana, not many people will know what a "Meijer" is. We like Meijer but it's not convenient for us. I would drive past (2) Krogers to get to Meijer and I drive past Walmart twice a day. Our son prefers Meijer but it's closer to him too.
I think both of us are having problems comprehending each other’s posts.The world is full of hypocrites. "Do as I say, not as I do" !!
Pretty sure he's referring to Pennzoil price at Walmart. I can't say I've seen any 5-quart oil at auto parts stores under $30 unless it's on sale or it's the store brand and even then, the store brand is in the high-20s. I have been buying O'Reilly Syntec for (2) of our cars and it's always around $30, sometimes with the oil filter bundle offer.
Sometimes, you have to do what you can to get by. I can certainly understand your situation.Walmart is the only grocery store in my area. I like there prices even though they have increased significant the last 2 years. Buying oil & oil filters is a no brainer there or online from there store.
Same here. Wally significantly less expensive than anywhere else around me.I buy oil exclusively either at Walmart or Amazon. Walmart is literally about ten dollars cheaper per jug than the auto parts stores and has been for years. For that savings you're basically getting a Fram Ultra with your purchase for free.
I can still remember watching OSU football games on the local PBS station (WBGU - Bowling Green) and how they weren't (re-)broadcast until the following day, so they showed them at 12:01am ! Must have been some licensing agreement between whoever carried the game live (probably a local Columbus station only) and PBS. Daughter attends there currently as well.Super bonus points for the correct spelling of that place up north.
