In a free market, it's adapt or die. If Wal-Mart has the best deal, go for it.
I don't lose any sleep over "mom n pop" after what I learned here a few years ago
Seems most of the sporting goods/hardware/etc stores belong to a statewide "buyer's cooperatrive." They get stuff for 10-15 percent BELOW
But do they cut prices to compete???? HELL NO! They charge full MSRP
, then they bitch about Wally, Big 5 etc undercutting them.
Do you feel sorry for them???? I don't!
