    Yes. If you don't believe me go and see for yourself.

    I recognize several "sale" items and recognize the same prices I pay every week.

    If they are sale prices, why don't they mention the regular price? The reason is that the regular every day price is the same.

    Yes, that's why they advertise that it's only for a limited time.

    So let's see....should I believe what WalMart prints in their ads, or the anonymous poster on the internet?

    You feel free to believe anyone you wish. You will anyway.

    Next time you're in Wal-Mart (cough, cough), ask them. I'm sure you are a regular customer.

    Says the anonymous internet poster who doesn't shop at Wal Mart and has no clue how they price merchandise.

    Tell you what.... Take your flyer into that Wal Mart on 3/1 and compare the prices. They will be the same.

    A lot of people, like myself, don;t shop at walmart because of their abusiveness with employees, and I don't care if walmart is giving away merchandise. So, to thinking people it's not a matter of price but a matter of fixing a broken system.

    Unfortunately, millions of poor people don't have the luxury of a choice that you "thinking" people do. They can't afford the prices at Trader Joes.

    When they start making $10 an hour they won't have to get public assistance and shop at the dented can store.

    Sure they will still shop at the dented can store. They will just have unlimited plans on their pre-paid cellphones.

    I'm not sure what your sarcasm is supposed to be saying here.
