Chinese Walmart

Last week in Tianjin I checked out Walmart.

It's not my first choice for shopping as I find the ones in North America kind of claustrophobic with the low ceilings and swarms of people everywhere looking for the best deal in town.

And the one in Tianjin was no different.

It had two floors, one for home goods, the other a supermarket. Most people were anxious to go grocery shopping, and there were lots of cooked or prepared foods to buy which is very convenient.

What was interesting, though was that in the electronics section, where the TVs were, there were park benches for people to park themselves for a break before continuing their shopping excursion.

Electronics stores in North America should have seats for its customers too. Makes sense if you want to check out a product to watch it....
