Like so many others I know, I'm not a Wal-Mart fan--yet I somehow keep being drawn back. Wal-Mart stores are the very definition of ubiquitous these days. And whatever else we may say of them (and we say quite a lot), there are certain products and services for which they are quite dependable.

The Leesburg store has the unenviable distinction of having had its roof cave in a few years back--the result of a particularly heavy snowfall. Beyond that, it is a rather ordinary Wal-Mart. Since there is no contained supermarket (only a sizable collection of snackables), it doesn't qualify as a supercenter. Recently, its begun to take on that rather shabby look and feel that so many older stores in the chain exhibit.

In terms of service, even the famous Wal-Mart greeter is usually absent, at least during my stops. As with most Wal-Marts, there aren't enough people working the floor and there aren't enough checkers. This store does not have the new do-it-yourself checkouts, so lines are common. I avoid the bathroom if I can. I stop here from time to time because its handy on my path home from work, and it is generally less crowded than the Wal-Mart in my home town. I stop for personal/hair supplies or toys as gifts for one of the children in my life.

On the whole, however, I don't like Wal-Mart and its mass marketing. I dislike the fact that it displaces so many community businesses. Nonetheless, it seems here to stay. This one is "satisfactory" for the limited use I make of it--but only for that.

PROS: Least crowded of the Wal-Marts in my life
CONS: It's Wal-Mart
