Good ...... I like the fact that a corp. doesn't get their way all the time.
I've seen too many Mom & Pop stores close when Wally World moves in.
There is no way that they can compete with their prices.
Where a small store orders a case of a certain product, Wally World/Costco order millions of a particular product and then sell them cheaper than what
a small store can buy it for.
I know from personal experience....years ago when we were in the Western business, before Clinton passed the NAFTA bill, we were able to sell many
mexico products reasonable and make a decent profit.
But then after NAFTA passed, Wally World was importing products and selling them at our whole sale prices.
There was no way we could compete with them. They didn't even try to be comparable to other stores prices.
It's just a cut throat type of mentality with them.
Needless to say, we discontinued many products thanks to them. It just wasn't feasible for us to carry the products any longer.
[we are no longer in that particular business]
So many stores have gone out due to those larger stores.
It's impossible to compete with their cheap prices.
Even many chain grocery stores are having a hard time competing.
It would be nice if the small business stores in our country were protected like they are trying to do in Korea.
I think it's a great idea....
