I'm a bit confused Ann (yeah I know, what else is new?!), but I was
under the impression Walmart was one of the few that were doing well
_because_ they have lower prices? I don't shop there so I've no idea
what their grocery prices are.
no, Wal-Mart does well because people don't want to think. they
don't want to price check. and they don't give a rat's ass about
quality, sustainability or fair trade.
so Wal-Mart ads say Low Prices Always, but they aren't really. they
are actually quite often *higher* than other local stores (if there are
any other local stores, since Wal-Mart is predatory when it moves into a
new area), but since Wal-Mart shoppers want to believe they are getting
low prices & they don't bother to ever comparison shop, Wal-Mart gets
away with it.
Interesting and thanks to you and Ann for the clarification. I shop the
local Winco and Costco so I had no idea.
For some unknown reason, there are large swaths of the NE with no Costco.
The nearest one for me is 150 miles.
