Local communities[ edit ] Walmart opened its Teotihuacan Superstore near the Pyramid of the Moon amid community protests. When Wal-mart plans a new store location, as often as not the company has to fight its way into town in the municipal equivalent of civil war between pro and anti Wal-Mart factions. Those who defend Walmart cite consumer choice and overall benefits to the economy, and object to bringing the issue into the political arena.
Just when you think your opinion about Wal-mart might be changing… Just when you think that maybe, just maybe, Wal-mart was learning to be a better citizen… Wal-mart turns around and does something really … despicable. This time… Wal-Mart is knocking off the Girl Scouts.
Of course, you know the Girl Scouts, those enthusiastic girls organized into local troops, learning about leadership and being resourceful? What could Wal-mart possibly do to harm Girl Scouts? Wal-mart is selling Fake Girl Scout Cookies. The Girl Scouts are especially desirable because the cookies are 1 unique and 2 rare.
Only the Girl Scouts sell those minty-chocolate-discs-from-heaven known as Thin Mints. The Girl Scouts sell these cookies only for a short time, once each year.
The exclusivity of Girl Scout cookies is what makes the cookies really sell. But now, Wal-mart is shoving itself in front of these little girls, and knocking on your door to sell you their almost-as-good fake Thin Mints and Fake Tagalongs, whenever you want them.
As mentioned in comments, there are other thin mint-chocolate wafer cookies on the market. However, no imitation Tagalongs have been spotted. Personal Disclosure I take these fake cookies, this threat to the Girl Scouts by Wal-mart, quite personally.

So yeah, this one really hits home. Wal-mart can sell all the hunting equipment, cheap plastic gizmos and clothes made in sweatshops that it wants to sell.
But why must they encroach upon the market of a non-profit? Why do they have to go after the Girl Scouts? Authenticity in all directions? Please note that the Girl Scouts had nothing to do with this post.
