    Please acquaint yourself with the thread. My view is that Wal-Mart is uniquely good for the poor.

    As well as offering lower prices for the goods that they require.

    How are they "uniquely" good for the poor?

    Who else offers similar choices at such low prices?

    I guess California is getting rational and charging Wallmart for the healthcare they provide.

    They don't have lower prices. Your in TX right? HEB. Kroger does too.

    Target has the same prices.

    HEB does not, especially the HEB Plus stores. Fiesta, WalMart and Target all beat HEB, I have no Kroger near me so I don't know about that.

    I don't believe their prices are lower than many other chain stores.
