Wal-Mart Math

Although I despise shopping at Wal-Mart, I buy my Schick Quattro razor cartridge refills there because they are less expensive than any other store in town.

One curious thing about their pricing through: Wal-Mart charges about one dollar more for an eight-pack refill than for two four-pack refills. I guess they assume that the average Wal-Mart customer cannot do the math.

Wal Mart is evil!
I am not a fan of Wal Mart. I seldom buy anything there. I do walk around in the store and look at people. I have noticed that the local Wal Mart's parking lot seems to be full day and night. The folks at Wal Mart are planning to tear down our local Wal Mart and then build a larger one. The members of the governing planning commission are fighting it. I think that it is too late...The damage has been done.

Re: hating walmart
"Walmartian" - now there's a great word. I do often feel like many of those folks are from some other planet.

Ha...

Personally, anytime I enter a Wal-Mart anymore, I cringe. Luckily, I've managed to only purchase three items there since last summer. Sadly, they've all been the same item. Before I decided to officially boycott Wal-Mart, I had started working on an afghan that I am crocheting. Since I bought the original yarn at Wal-Mart and no other place sells the matching colors, it appears that they've at monopolized my afghan... *sigh*
