Remember when Walmart stores in Minnesota started playing music outside?  I remember getting out of my car after I parked it and then just looking around because I wasn't sure why there was loud pop music playing in the Walmart parking lot.  Are people too cranky at Walmart and so they wanted to cheer everyone up before we walked in?  No idea but Walmart loves change and it seems like they are making another huge one that you won't be able to miss!  Seriously, this one will make you do a double-take.
