    Au contraire. They are the only chain that can compete with military PX outlets.

    Obviously their competition in DC did or they would not have sicked the city council on them while getting exempted from the very law that they say is needed.

    I've noticed, in terms of prices, Wal-Mart is generally cheaper, though other stores often have sales that push certain products cheaper than or comparable to Wal-Mart.

    From 2011! What bilge! Besides, Target doesn't dare open near US military installations.

    The problem with "sale" shopping is that the savings on the sale items must exceed the fuel/time required to shop several stores.

    Sure. I'm fortunate to have several stores in walking distance so it's not a large concern of mine, but I can see how Wal-Mart blanket prices would be economically advantageous even if certain things are cheaper elsewhere at the time.

    Do you have a time machine? What good are price differences from spring 2011?

    equally anti freedom is the law which forbids employers from forbidding a union. If you want to trade unions being able to refuse to participate unless they control everyone for employers being able to refuse to participate unless unions control no one as the starting position for each I'd go along with that. Otherwise, let us implement right to work so that both sides are equally yoked.

    That is what I found using google.
    if they have lower prices its because they don't compensate their employees very well.
