Worst Company In America Round 2: Walmart Vs. GameStop

With all other remaining contenders having had their time trying to shoot each other with crossbows or burn each other alive with wildfire in the vast, Worst Company In America Hunger Games arena, Round Two comes to a close with this match-up between two reviled retailers.

Walmart may be the country’s most popular retail destination, but that obviously doesn’t mean people are too thrilled about having to shop there. However, several WCIA prognosticators were surprised that Big W’s victory over the combined suck of Sears/Kmart was not a complete and utter blow-out.

Meanwhile, GameStop had no problem putting the finishing moves on WCIA rookie Netflix, winning with more than 70% of the vote. Which just goes to show you that you can screw with prices for DVD rentals, but don’t mess with a person’s video game collection.

So line up at the cash register and vote. No returns, refunds or exchanges.

(Voting on this poll will close at 11:59 p.m. ET on Sunday, March 25.)
