Post the stores you will not shop at and why, yo~ going to publish these across the web. Policies should be considered at the Corporate level rather than you don't like the local store manager, etc.

Retailers/E-tailers
    Best Buy: poor customer service, bad pricing, receipt nazi*
    Brandsmart USA: receipt nazi*
    Fry's Electronics: poor customer service, receipt nazi*
    Walmart: low quality garbage, corporate ethics

Vendors
    BTC: Cheap Trash Electronics (Computer Hardware)

*Receipt Nazi indicates someone stands at the exit door and watches you walk from the cashier to the door and then asks to see what the peice of paper says, that he/she just saw the cashier hand you...to obviously prevent secret encoded store messages from escaping. He/she then highlights it to verify it has been decoded.

    Retailers:

    Comp USA
    Target (They have a ton of shit, but none of it is what you're looking for)

    Vendors

    Compaq (Shitty computers, shitty support, shitty shits)

    I can't tell you how many time's i've gone into a Target store, even looking for something non-electronic, and it wasn't there. It's like they know what I'm looking for, and they pull it off the shelf and burn it out back. really weird IMO

    Long Story Short: Woman that works nights at Walmart is hit by truck. Massive brain trauma. Hospital charges millions. Walmart ends up writing a check for $400000 out of EMPLOYEE owned HSA type health plan. They still owe more than a million to hospital. Woman is brain damaged for life and must life the rest of her life in a wheel chair at a nursing home.

    Woman sues truck company. Wins 1 million. Lawyers take $650,000+ leaving her with just over $400,000 which Walmart then turned and sued her for stating it should be theirs now. Now they are trying to control+z but it's not going so well yo.

    This is a perfect reminder for all the ignorant Walmart shoppers out there...

    Customer Service Prank Call @ Peanut Butter Recall


    Also, from a racist perspective, when is a stereotype actually reality? I rode the roflcopter too when I got Church's Chicken and Krispy Cream advertisements on the sidebar. The Krispy Cream prank is based on Atlanta so if you know anything about Atlanta, it's worth listening to...
