    That's nothing, won't be long before they stop selling firearms altogether.[:D]

    Do you ever get that "feeling" when you are in the store, that its "evil"? I will not go in unless its a must cause for something, just don't like them. nambu

    In this town, K-Mart is slowly cutting back -- they're the oldest discount chain in town, probably, and have older stores. Meier's doesn't have as good a selection as they claim. Wal-Marts here are new and shiny, clean, and prosperous. Target appears to be doing okay trying to appeal to "upscale bargain hunters," but their stores are older, and I haven't been in one for years -- their variety isn't particularly interesting.

    Wal-Mart's prescription drug prices are about the best in this area, in some cases by a large margin. I know because I call around for quotes, not having insurance at present, and when I find a good price I stick with that store on the item until they try to jack it up. There is some fierce competition here among the superstore chains of all types -- household, office, hardware, and groceries. That's the way people here like it, I think. Occasionally a store closes -- while others are building new locations.

    I only started going in Wal-Mart recently, so I don't know much good or ill of them from personal experience. I moved a quarter mile from one and started using it as my corner store -- odds and ends, a cheap DVD, car cleaner, prescriptions. I only looked at their guns a couple times before I determined they don't stock much and half of it is Dalys.

    I prefer to check the Sunday fliers and spread around my support of discount stores because I don't want one chain to put the others out of business -- after all, if our experience with capitalism proves anything, it's that there's no incentive for competitive pricing without competition. [;)]

    I am an avid Wal Mart shopper - some things just cannot be had at a better value (price to performance ratio) anywhere else. But I have stopped buying fruit from there (bananas that break in half instead of open, for example), and stopped buying ammo when they asked for ID to buy shotgun shells. But I got some good-enough-quality knives for my new apartment very cheaply there, and their garbage cans can't be beat for price. It's really a matter of what you want to buy and what you want out of it. I won't have these knives forever, probably using them no longer than 4 years if I really stretch it out, so Wal Mart is good enough.

    Yeah... We went to Dumb-Mart last night. Seen enough weirdos to make a Deliverance sequel[:D]. It has been at least two months since we have been there. I even got the wife to disliken' that dump, but once in a while we end up there.

    i am not a big fan of wal-mart myself their service sucks . maybe some of them are different but the one by me SUCKS [xx(]. i decided to just ask a few dumb questions at the firearms department and the guy working had no clue to what i was talking about . it was very very sad !!!!!! he said "here look at this" and tossed a book on the table and then left . then as i was looking at the guns the price tag had fallen off quite a few of them so i asked the price of one of them and he couldnt even figure that out so i just left !!!and i cant believe they arent selling toy gunsno more that is total B.S. "bad image" whatever!! does anyone know it target still sells toy guns . none of the ones by me sell real working firearms but i havent thought about looking to see about toy guns .

    Cheaper N Dirt is selling some really cool looking soft air guns. If I was a kid today I would have a huge collection of those things.

    In Northern California they put BB guns in the firearm display cases as they have ceased firearms sales.

    Sometime back someone here noted that Costco had the best prices & that you did not have to be a member to use the pharmacy.
    Too bad I don't recall who because he has saved my wife & me quite a bit as he was right on both counts.
    I also discovered that my local Von's pharmacy will price match so now I don't even have to drive to Costco. I just use Costco to get the lower price.
