    depends how many square kilometers you divided by, on google it says 9,826,630
    so 9,826,630 divided by 3176 is.... 3,094 so 1 per 3,904 square kilometers
    or maybe i did it wrong too....

    ugh, watching this is sorta making me ill. According to that video there are around 5 Wal Marts in the St. louis area...I know there`s one down the street for me and...well the point im trying to make is that St. louis isn`t that f*cking big and they have so many here.

    Hmm... Looks to me like what would have happened if we had suffered a nuclear attack by the Chinese... Oh wait... WAL-MART? We DID just get nuked... just with cheap, inferior chinese MERCHANDISE instead of BOMBS.

    Another two points to Fancylad.

    The reason there are fewer Wal-Marts in most of the west is because there are fewer people in the majority of those states. The Wal-Marts are concentrated in the populated areas. For instance, there aren`t 4 Wal-Marts in Nevada, as someone stated. There are 20 in Las Vegas alone, but most of Nevada is uninhabited, thus, you are not going to see another Wal-Mart for like 7 hours once you head north. Since moving back to Southern California from Las Vegas I noticed there are way less Wal-Marts to go around, making them much more crowded. Las Vegas has a population of 1.4 million in only 741 square miles with 20 Wal-Marts. San Diego has a population of nearly 3 million in 2000 square miles and only 18 Wal-Marts, none of which are Super Wal-Marts, thanks to the lobbyists. In short, San Diego has twice the people, three times the land area, and still has less Wal-Marts than Las Vegas.

    This is the scariest thing I`ve seen all week! I`ve only been dragged to Wal-Mart once in my life and it is an experience I would not like to repeat.

    Did you know that in China, Wal-Mart is considered a luxury store? It`s because it carries American brands that are difficult to find in China. Interesting fact, huh?

    Walmart is just over expanding too much, just like Starbucks and Krispy Kreme, both of which are falling into financial trouble by opening too many stores too quickly.

    Its a slow process, but it should hit Walmart too, if they continue to build store after store in locations that are already saturated. Capitalism is a cruel mistress.

    Wal-Mart is like a disease. If you want to watch something extremely interesting about Wal-Mart watch "Wal-Mart the High Cost of Low Prices" It will change what you think about Wal-Mart.

    Alaska, Hawii(just assuming..), and Nevada are pretty much the only safe areas..
    I remember there used to be this old guy at a walmart near where I lived and he`d hand out smiley face stickers...
    Damn I miss that guy.

    For the people who missed my post and said Nevada is lucky/smart for having so few Wal-Marts...

    There are fewer Wal-Marts because most of Nevada is uninhabited, but they are highly concentrated in the populated areas. There are 20 Wal-Marts in Las Vegas alone. Compared to San Diego, that`s twice as many Per Capita.

    And I thought Utah had too many wal-marts...I`m never moving to the east! I`d get chlostrophobic from all of the wal-marts there. I try not to shop there anymore. I go to target instead, and then when target takes over the world, I`ll find another place, lol.
