Re: “Walmart Watch

LOL!! That's awesome... I like that comment... :-) I apologize for the previous comment, it definitely comes off wrong... What I want to say is that this is a free market society and Walmart has been successful for good reason. The more stores you have, the more products you can get at bulk prices... Which you can then offer to your customers at a lower rate than competitors... It's pretty basic...
All of this hype behind hating Walmart and "Big Box" retailers is just silly... I'm sorry that "Mom & Pop" stores can't compete... But that is going to happen... It's hard to compete with something that is more efficient... It's sad, but they have to find a new line of business... Very few business owners wouldn't want to open two locations as opposed to one... Why? Because increased revenue increases your abilities to provide... So what if there is someone who makes billions off of a good idea & business model??? They should be an example of success... Not someone to abhor... And as for quality of products... No one goes to Walmart to buy something that will last 20 years... But if I need a can opener, I'm going to Walmart to get one for $1.97 not some place trying to charge me $3.65...

Re: “Walmart Watch

I decided NOT to move to Humboldt because there wasn't a WalMart... If you don't appreciate a free market society... Go move to the Middle East... I'm sure there's plenty of room for you there...
