Is There Anything You Can't Find at Wal-Mart?

Is There Anything You Can't Find at Wal-Mart?

It seems like everytime I go to Wal-Mart, they've added something new to their long list of products and services.Is There Anything You Can't Get at Wal-Mart  You can get groceries and a haircut, go to the bank, get your eyes tested and purchase new glasses.  You can pick up a prescription and a bag a fertilizer all in one stop.  When a new big ticket item comes on the market, I just wait for a awhile and, sure enough, Wal-Mart will eventually carry it at a lower price.

Wal-Mart just announced a "first" for them.  They are now going to be in the cell phone service business.  They've sold cell phones and cell phone services like Verizon and Sprint for quite some time.  However, now they are selling service under their own brand name.  They call it Wal-Mart Family Mobile and it costs about $45 per month.  Unlimited texting and voice mail is included in that price.  If you need more than one phone, you can purchase additional lines for $25 each.  Did I mention no contract?

Wal-Mart won't have its own towers but will be using the T-Mobile network.

Now for the downside - no data plans or other smart phone amenities; something tech-savvy and business people can't seem to live without.
