The blog quoted many sources.I guess you have a research deficiency.I can tell because you failed to finish.Or you would have mentioned Snapper.They
saw what was comming and walmarts pressure to make a cheaper more throw away lawnmower.So people would come back year after year to buy" cheap"
I also noticed you can't see your own errors.Remember your comment about the limited shift caca.Well I responded with a answer,by your comment it was
obvious you had no idea what I was talking about (back to
your research deficiency?) no you just threw out a insult.
You seem like a person who just takes a stance with no real idea of the subject.Are you mean and lonely
and just want to argue?
No deficiency at all. I answered the question you asked. If you wanted me to answer another one, you should have asked it and I would have been glad
to. But I'm not clairvoyant.
As to Snapper, Wier gave himself another outlet other than WalMart. He's what's called a "smart, responsible businessperson".
He actually had foresight, knowing that in a few years WalMart would have him in their snare. He decided to take his business and run.
Wier had two things going for him: First, he had another way to get his lawn mowers to customers--a well-established network of independent
lawn-equipment dealers that accounted for 80% of Snapper's sales. And Wier had the courage, the foresight, to take an unblinking view of where his
Wal-Mart business was heading--not in year 3, or year 4, but year 10.
All of this arguing back forth doesn't change the fact that WalMart sells billions of dollars a year of what consumers want. Again, if they didn't
want it, WalMart would be out of business. Yet you blame WalMart for "running other businesses out town" and harumphing about it! RAWR! All it takes
is people not going to WalMart but going somewhere else.
I'd be ecstatic to see WalMart shut down and numerous small businesses take over. Better many small, homey stores than one big, faceless cold entity.
But that's never going to happen because of two reasons:
1) People buy what they sell and,
2) People continue applying for crappy jobs there.
So, keep on whining about the big bad wolf, guys. But until you come up with a plan and do something because it's time to stop and enough is enough,
they aren't going anywhere and they're not required to hire anyone for any kind of wage except minimum.
