No more love among the aisles

ROANOKE, Virginia (AP) — Wal-Mart has ditched a program that helped single shoppers find love in the discount store’s aisles.

Officials
at Wal-Mart headquarters in Bentonville, Arkansas, ordered their
Roanoke store to put an end to Singles Shopping, the only program of
its kind at Wal-Mart’s U.S. stores.

Taking a cue from Wal-Marts
in Germany, the month-old program encouraged customers on Friday
evenings to pick up a red bow they could place on their shopping carts
as an invitation to other singles. “Flirt points” were set up in
various sections of the store.

A Wal-Mart spokesman declined to
comment on the reason behind the program’s cancellation. But customer
Dale Firebaugh, who showed up Friday night hoping to meet his match,
said store employees told him several people had complained.

“I’m disappointed,” said Firebaugh, 63. “Where can someone over 40 who doesn’t smoke or drink or go to bars meet someone?”
