By the way, I've noticed that there's no supercenters in the Detroit area, even though many stores are only a couple years old.


I believe I read on another message board that there is a Kmart SuperCenter in Detroit itself... (and that Detroit has no real supermarket chains in the city).--Sort of off topic

There is a Kmart within Detroit city limits, but I thought Kmart was getting rid of the grocery sections of Supercenters.

And there are a couple Save-A-Lots in Detroit itself, and I think a Farmer Jack too -- that sorta counts, it's an A & P brand.

actually both names "Mal-Wart" and "Sprawl Mart" make sense

since calling Wal-Mart, Mal-Wart  means actually in my opinion that Wal-Mart IS a Mall Wart in other words it is a wart to malls. Something that malls probalbly think is fearful and ugly( just like a girl hates warts) because they sciphen/take away sales from malls and their achor stores since Wal-Mart is a Big Box store!

and the name Sprawl Mart could relate to the fact that they want to sprawl all over the U.S. AND the world to kill off all other stores INCLUDING supermarkets!

Notice the last line saying " We do substantial good in the communities that we locate"

YEAH! SURE! Wally Fart! tell that to the area that lost Ames,Bradlees,Caldor,D&L,some Kmarts, NU STARS, Jamesway Franks Nursery,and other stores!

HAVING ABANDONED STORES THAT WERE AT ONE TIME GREAT STORES UP FOR LEASE AND FOR SALE THAT LOOK DIRTY AND MAKE AN AREA LOOK POOR AND HAVING A LOSS OF JOBS IS "GOOD" FOR THE COMMUNITY?  angry :hurt:

I THINK NOT!

I DON'T CARE WHAT WAL-MART SUPPORTERS SAY!

WE NEED TO DRIVE WALMART OUT OF BUSINESS


IT IS A THREAT TO OUR FREEDOM OF CHOICE,FREEDOM TO SHOP ANYWHERE WE WANT TO, AND FREEDOM TO HAVE UNIONS AND HAVE MANUFACTURING JOBS

JUST  LOOK AT WHAT THEY'VE ALREADY DONE!

HOW MANY STORES HAVE WE'VE LOST IN JUST THE NEW ENGLAND AREA ALONE?

Allright I confess. :saint:

When I first walked into my newly opened Walmart in Torrington about 10 years ago I thought it was cool and stuff :holysh:

especially cheap prices:bouncing:

liked their commercials :)

enjoyed seeing the smily face :bigsmile:

AW HECK I Could OF sworn it was like Caldor!:o

and me and my family ALWAYS went there to shop!

until after problably around when Ames was closing I found out Walmart's dirty little secret: to make all the so called "competition" history.
Shocked
THEY wanted to undersell so much to close MY STORES in MY own neighborhood!!

they won't stop until they make other stores to  hardly be able  to compete with Walmart.

Caldor's tried failed

Ames tried failed

Bradlees tried failed

Kmarts doing its best so far

Frank's went GOB but are reorganizing

you see Walmarts making it a tough time for local and eventually national chains to operate with such DEMAND FOR LOWER PRICES NO MATTER WHAT Shocked

Walmarts gonna kill them off one by one THEY KEEP SHOVING INTO TOWNS AND AREAS WITHOUT A WALMART AND SAY "THEY NEED US TO SURVIVE" AND EVEN AFTER THAT THEY KEEP BUILDING MORE AND MORE STORES MAKING LOCAL STORES WEAKER

THEIR SHOVING THIS "LOW PRICE" JUNK DOWN THEIR THROATS !

SO THATS WHY I RARELY GO TO THEM FOR SHOPPING!

BTW Walmart didn't need to come up here in New England we already had a stable retail store economy we had Ames,Bradlees,Caldor,and other local chains functioning
fine and who knows? they could of been a HUGE success if they were allowed to operate WITHOUT tough competition they could of sooner or later expand to become national chains and would bring in more revenue for us! BENEFITING US!:bigsmile::bigsmile::bigsmile::bigsmile::bigsmile::bigsmile::bigsmile::bigsmile:

BUT NOOOOO! WALMART HAD TO COME UP HERE AND SCREW IT UP! NOW LOOK WHERE WE ARE!:mad:angryangryangry:flaming::flaming::flaming::flaming:

NOT TO MENTION THE JOBS THAT ARE BEING LOST TO OVERSEAS!

BTW I go by what a store does not what it is!The name does not matter its what they actually do that matters!

I mean if a different store did this I'd be bashing all the same and this particular stores name happens to be Walmart

For Example lets say this as a senario

Lets say Caldor was doing what Walmart's doing killing off stores and taking away jobs and banning unionnizing etc. would I bash them? YES! Even though they are a local chain AND I know them well (and would sort of be rooting for them BUT I would realize what their doing is BAD!) that would not excuse them for their qwest to dominate. For Caldor to be the ONLY store to shop at and all the other chains GONE!

I mean IF Caldor WAS being SO DOMINATING that Ames couldn't compete with them and went GOB

WOULD I BE MAD?

YES ALL THE SAME!  

IF Caldor forced the closing of Ames would you be mad?

I would think so!

So heres my point its  not the store chain name that matters when dealing with an overpowering company what matters is what the store chain is doing to be overpowering

If the overpowering company that was using Walmart's tactics was:
Bradlees
Kmart
Ames
Caldor
JCPenny
Sears
etc.

I would be bashing them all the same

Allright I confess. :saint:

When I first walked into my newly opened Walmart in Torrington about 10 years ago I thought it was cool and stuff :holysh:

especially cheap prices:bouncing:

liked their commercials :)

enjoyed seeing the smily face :bigsmile:

AW HECK I Could OF sworn it was like Caldor!:o

and me and my family ALWAYS went there to shop!

until after problably around when Ames was closing I found out Walmart's dirty little secret: to make all the so called "competition" history.
Shocked
THEY wanted to undersell so much to close MY STORES in MY own neighborhood!!

they won't stop until they make other stores to  hardly be able  to compete with Walmart.

Caldor's tried failed

Ames tried failed

Bradlees tried failed

Kmarts doing its best so far

Frank's went GOB but are reorganizing

you see Walmarts making it a tough time for local and eventually national chains to operate with such DEMAND FOR LOWER PRICES NO MATTER WHAT Shocked

Walmarts gonna kill them off one by one THEY KEEP SHOVING INTO TOWNS AND AREAS WITHOUT A WALMART AND SAY "THEY NEED US TO SURVIVE" AND EVEN AFTER THAT THEY KEEP BUILDING MORE AND MORE STORES MAKING LOCAL STORES WEAKER

THEIR SHOVING THIS "LOW PRICE" JUNK DOWN THEIR THROATS !

SO THATS WHY I RARELY GO TO THEM FOR SHOPPING!

BTW Walmart didn't need to come up here in New England we already had a stable retail store economy we had Ames,Bradlees,Caldor,and other local chains functioning
fine and who knows? they could of been a HUGE success if they were allowed to operate WITHOUT tough competition they could of sooner or later expand to become national chains and would bring in more revenue for us! BENEFITING US!:bigsmile::bigsmile::bigsmile::bigsmile::bigsmile::bigsmile::bigsmile::bigsmile:

BUT NOOOOO! WALMART HAD TO COME UP HERE AND SCREW IT UP! NOW LOOK WHERE WE ARE!:mad:angryangryangry:flaming::flaming::flaming::flaming:



NOT TO MENTION THE JOBS THAT ARE BEING LOST TO OVERSEAS!

BTW I go by what a store does not what it is!The name does not matter its what they actually do that matters!

I mean if a different store did this I'd be bashing all the same and this particular stores name happens to be Walmart

For Example lets say this as a senario

Lets say Caldor was doing what Walmart's doing killing off stores and taking away jobs and banning unionnizing etc. would I bash them? YES! Even though they are a local chain AND I know them well (and would sort of be rooting for them BUT I would realize what their doing is BAD!) that would not excuse them for their qwest to dominate. For Caldor to be the ONLY store to shop at and all the other chains GONE!

I mean IF Caldor WAS being SO DOMINATING that Ames couldn't compete with them and went GOB

WOULD I BE MAD?

YES ALL THE SAME!  

IF Caldor forced the closing of Ames would you be mad?

I would think so!

So heres my point its  not the store chain name that matters when dealing with an overpowering company what matters is what the store chain is doing to be overpowering

If the overpowering company that was using Walmart's tactics was:
Bradlees
Kmart
Ames
Caldor
JCPenny
Sears
etc.

I would be bashing them all the same

exactly what I mean!

If Caldor really did go nationwide and would be like Target I WOULD HOPE THEY GOT TO #1 fairly AND NOT LIKE WALMART BY STALKING ALL THEIR COMPETITION AND KILLING IT OFF!

oh yeah plus the name "WAL*MART" sounds so dated to me sounds so 1960s retail storish

I MEAN THE EVEN THE NAME "CALDOR" sounds up to date because they had a image of keeping ahead staying with the times alway updated!

I mean if Caldor was still around in 2005 it wouldn't seem dated provided they update the logo a little

they plan to too in 2001 they were planning to go "Conformist Blue" I think thats what they call it BUT WAL*MART BEING A A-hole didn't want anyof that so Caldors is gone  :(

THE ONLY WAY TO STOP THEM IS TO BOYCOTT THEM!
AND SHOP AT YOUR LOCAL TARGET OR ANYWHERE ELSE TO KEEP DIVERSITY IN SHOPPING VENUES ALIVE!!
