Default When is a Walmart coming

I'm not an BritishExpat, i'm an American but since you speak english too I want to find out when a Walmart is coming to Dubai? I'm sick of paying $200 for some lawn chairs that cost $12 at home.

have you tried Carrefours/Lulu/union coop they are all cheaper shops. Also Ace have some nice garden furniture.and if you feel home sick for walmarts have a look at this to remind yourself why you shouldn't go there. lol

Rather a good thing we don't speak American, huh?

Carrefour is just fine.

It's probably more expensive but if Walmart opened a store in the UAE it'd be more expensive than the US branches. I never liked Walmart - the epitome of the cheap.

Walmart and Carrefour seem to be dividing the world up between them... and so as Carrefour are here already, you won't see Walmart come....
