Are you shopping for a new iPad at this moment. Word of advice, don’t do it at Walmart USA. Over the past day, this video was posted to YouTube, showing Walmart USA employees from Pikeville, KY tossing iPads in the stock room. They even go as far as smashing them on the floor. If you don’t like being tech destroyed, I suggest you don’t watch this video.
In a statement to CNET, a spokesperson said,
“We’ve seen the video of several night-shift associates destroying merchandise in the back of one of our stores in August and, as anyone can image, it made us wince. We are also embarrassed.”
“Since this unfortunate incident, we haven’t received any returns of this merchandise. We stand behind our merchandise, and our associates work very hard to take proper care and handling of the products we put on our shelves.”
So if you’re in the USA, and looking for an iPad, especially around Black Friday, don’t go to Walmart, at least not this location. Go to Best Buy or Target, or come up here to Canada and buy it here!
