Remember when Wal-Mart

I remember one difference between Wal-Mart & K-Mart was that Wal-Mart had stuff made in America and K-Mart carried all foreign jeans & shirts?

That may have at one time been true, but it no longer is. That was how they "suckered" ya in there. My local Wallet World started out cheaper than the locals, once JCPenney, Elder Berman, Big Bear, Kmart, Radio Shack, Ames, closed their the prices are as high as the other stores were before they closed, now they are higher on most things, particularly in the food department than the competitors that are still barely surviving. Plus, everyhting that I ever seen in Wally World is MADE IN CHINA! And their clothes are not even comparable to those that were sold at JCPEnney or Elder-Beerman. Truth be known, the same bunch of people that owned/own Kmart..Ames..etc. are the same bunch whom own Wallet World. I'll pay more just to not give it to strange people whom are already rich beyond belief, I'll give it to my neighbor first at a reasonably higher dollar amount. People worry about $2 here and $5 there, then turn right around and pay $6.00 for a cup of beer at a sporting event. $150+ for a seat at a ballgame. $20 for a $2 CD. $50,000 for a pick up truck that gets 10 mpg, plus insurance. When people get hungry, their priorities will change. Wallet World won't be there to say, "Can I help You"?

You are so right. I have always worn Wranglers, because I could depend on them. My wife gave me a pair, for Christmas. They were labeled the same size as my older ones. When I tried them on, they were over an inch longer. I checked the label, and learned that they are now being made in Taiwan. Another good product ruined overseas. It's getting to where you can't find ANYTHING made in the USA.
