Similar to the mallrat, the rural Wal-rat hangs out at the local Wal-mart because his or her town is too small to support an actual mall.
Philip: So... Earl, what is there to do for fun around here in Whiteland, IN (real place, look it up.)

Earl: Welp, you can come wid us down to Franklin to the Wal-mart so we can play some video games while Jeff flirts with the chick from the gun and tackle section. I also heard that the Mickey D's there brought back the super size, we can hit that up after we pick up the new Nickelback cd.

Philip: Nah, that's cool. I'll just stick with this porn. I'm not really down with the Wal-rat scene anyways.

Youth or young adults who typically congregate at their local Wal-Mart. It is more common at Supercenters, but it can also take place at a smaller, traditional location.

Wal-rat originated from the word mallrat, the latter being part of American life for teenagers for over 20 years. As Wal-Mart continues to grow, Wal-rats will also continue to flourish.

Rural areas that do not have a shopping mall but only a Wal-Mart are usually popular locations for Wal-rats. Moreover, it is also an alternative hangout for mallrats to congregate, especially to avoid the stringent rules that mall security can enforce upon its patrons.
Person 1 - Would you like to come to Wal-Mart with me?
Person 2 - You Wal-rat, this is like the third time this week that you've went to Wal-Mart!
