    You missed the point of logic. Your rant has none.

    They eliminate the competition by using unethical business practices.

    They sell for less. That's unethical to people who sell for more.

    ....but, as pointed out, and which you continue to avoid, there is a net job loss.

    The point still remains, when you are JOBLESS, the prices would have to get to zero for them to benefit you when your job was eliminated by a Big Box.

    And please, don't even get me started on the advantages Big Boxes gain in taxes breaks and free infrastructure small retailers can only dream about.

    See, if the residents of these communities really didn't want them they wouldn't shop there. If so, the stores would be unprofitable. Is that what happens?
