I have started checking my local Walmart. Please note that it is in a depressed area where not many rich people live, so basically sort of a ghetto area. The machines and the flavors are at the beginning of an aisle. In the last 3 days, I have not noticed any new machine sold. Of the flavors they are all available, but I noticed that the cola and diet cola have some gaps, so I guess they are being bought. 3 days ago everything was on the shelves, but today I noticed that they have added an additional stand of flavors. I am not clear if they are selling or not. I would say they are not selling much as the average customer is running on a car with spare tire. Any opinion on this? are the other Walmarts I read about more wealthy areas?
Not every Walmart stocks and profiles SODA in this manner - particularly ones in poor or depressed areas as your "local" one seems to. In truth, I have no reason to believe your post - could you disclose which walmart? - what's the address? - I will verify and apologize if I am wrong.
fyi. I called Sodastream's Call Center to order the ocean spray flavors. The call center is located in Boston. The lady I spoke to said they are sold out and to call back in mid January. I could hear from my phone a great deal of activity. Apparently, the Ocean Spray flavors has become a big success.
