We have all seen the commercials, the ones where Walmart compares itself to our local Union Grocery stores. The ads seem to imply that Walmart is saving us all so much money - but like so much we see today, the truth is really missing. UFCW1189's parady of the ad shows the true cost - not the false savings. Watch. Share. and Shop at Union Stores.
