    This is correct. When I was a young E-3 with a family living in the States, Wal-Mart saved me tons of money compared to shopping anywhere else, even the BX.

    from the article:

    "For the first time in four years, our price comparisons between the two has shown that Target has a slight edge over Wal-Mart," said Johnson. A smaller study by Kantar Retail found similar results.

    Wal-Mart typically maintains a 2% to 4% price advantage over Target. But in January, Johnson noticed that some products were cheaper at Target.

    Wal-Mart hate is stupid. Don't like their stores? Don't shop there. Don't like their paychecks? Don't work there.

    Well, I guess if they don't want the tax revenue and jobs.....go for it.

    The biggest price advantage gained by WalMart is gained through buying in huge quantities and using massive regional distribution centers.

    Don't like their competition then use politicians to pass laws to keep them out.

    If their employees aren't happy with their salaries, they should go get another job. Oh, wait, the economy is still in the crapper. The only jobs that are out there are minimum wage jobs. My bad.

    He owes the union nothing. What if he got his job before the union negotiated a new contract, and the union members got the same package he did? By your thinking, then everyone else owes him dues.

    Looks like this might not have the happy ending that the Libbos think it will.
