Volume buying vs. quality? LMAO. Colt makes rifles for the military. Talk about volume buying.

The best way I found to shop at walmart is by taking in the other store ads. Walmart has a policy of ad matching price. That coupled with their lower prices helps me assure the most bang for my grocery buck. On the way out of the store I generally hand the ads to some family that is about to enter the store.

What is interesting about Walmart's "price matching" scheme, is that they will not price match within their own system. I shop at two different Walmarts. One is in a rural area and is an "ethnic" store. The other is in a much more upscale neighboorhood.

The prices in the "ethnic" rural store are consistantly higher than in the upscale store. Just for kicks and giggles I took photos in the high end store of price lables and took the, the same day, to the other store. They would not match the store 20 miles away prices.

If you took everthing in the store, that is made in China, out of the store, you could put the rest of the merchandise in the bedroom I am sitting in now.
They are one of the biggest causes of the trade imbalance.

As far as their employees, the treat them like dirt. Only a small portion of the employees get any benefits. Most make minimum wage or slightly more. A large proportion of Wal-Marts employees get government assistance because their wages leave them below the poverty line.

The higher prices in the hood doesn't surprise me. When I was in retail management, the stores in the hood always had the largest gross margin of profit.

LA and MS do also. limited items tho, depends on where you are located.

as for the "seconds" theory.......wal-mart used to sell guns, and if anything was wrong with them, take them back (with a receipt). but people would buy them for the huntin season, and bring them back....even if workin properly. due to the "new" regulations over the past 15 or 20 years, they won't anymore. so be wary when buyin guns from wally world.

oh, by the way, a cousin of mine bought 6 guns from wal-mart back in the late eighties. he said there were something like 10 or 20 long guns that an associate was pushin around in a cart. he asked her what she was doin with them, and she said they were for discount. he asked if he could look thru them, she said yes, and he ended up buying an 870 20 gauge Express, and 870 12 gauge Wingmaster, a .22 or some sort, two muzzleloaders and something else for less than $600.00. there was a Model 700 that he was gonna get, but he had to go home and come back. when he got back, it was gone.
