Roswell Wal-Mart.

Roswell Walmart Alien Decorations (Gone)

Field review by the editors.

Roswell, New Mexico

"Welcome, Earth brothers, we bring you fabulous savings!"

There's something about Roswell that allows usually-unyielding brand police to loosen up a little. Even the local Walmart supercenter, which stands at the north end of town, has given its exterior some flair with artwork of a flying saucer and smiling alien head. Notable not so much for the art as for the fact that it exists at all. As long as the aliens don't turn out to be post-consumption-beings with no bargain glands, corporate America is cool with them.

Update: By June, 2012 the ET Trampoline was reported gone, and the building appears to have been denuded of its extraterrestrial trappings as of 2013.
