Obviously you are pretty passionate for walmart, maybe you work there or something and its clouded your concept of reality.<quoted text>
Actually, "Kibble" thinks they're too good for the Walmart shopping experience. In "Kibble's" eyes - any Walmart is bad. You have to pay way way more for the same item you know to have any status at all.
Target's prices are usually about the same as walmart's, you're just tricked into thinking its less expensive at Walmart because the stores look like h_ell. Its just a trick by Walmart, they trick you into thinking you're shopping in a low end store which means low end prices and Walmart can get away with not having enough employees to staff the store and what staff they have to be untrained and no customer service skills at all, but you are willing to accept it for their low prices.
In the interim small businesses in towns across the country are going out of business because of Walmart and the money walmart makes is being funneled to china and other places that have to manufacture the cheap garbage because domestically made products are too expensive to be sold at Walmart.
So I don't think anyone thinks they are too good for the Walmart shopping experience, but I think everyone should be too good for it.
Sadly though this country is all too full of the typical Jerry Springer show cast offs that want to try to save every cent they can on their mountain dew and potato chip purchases.
This is a quote I saw in another article that was interesting and true:
"Many people continue to support Wal-Mart because they do not think they can afford to shop anywhere else. There is an element of truth to this, and of course, it is part of Wal-Mart's plan -- kill off every low-cost competitor. In short, Wal-Mart creates poverty and then it becomes the store of last resort for victims of poverty.
Wal-Mart -- the largest company in the world -- operates in a way that increases government welfare spending, contributes to suburban sprawl, drives local companies out of business, decreases employment in both retail and manufacturing while lowering the wages in both sectors, and increases our tendency to consume natural resources that we do not need."
