Maybe so...How long did you hunt on Wikipedia for that word??? Do you pick
one word everyday and try to use it to impress someone or to try to convince
everyone that your the smartest person in the room??? Why , I bet your a
legend in your own mind even...That said...You gotta admitt the "fascinated
one" was more than a little over the top in bashing Walmart which begs one
to wonder why??? So I asked...Perhaps , instead it's WMDS (Walmart
Derangement Syndrome)..Sorta like BDS (Bush Derangement Syndrome)..LOL...The
sales figures speak for themselves...Walmart is the ONLY major retailer
making money...No rebuttal needed....
Seems you only know how to respond by issuing personal attacks. For an
educational experience look up an "ad hominem attack" and see how you
have invalidated any point you are trying to make. Typically if you want
to make a counter point you present a rebuttal. Name calling is just
school yard behavior.
.That said...You gotta admitt
So I guess it's trying to impress everyone , huh?? All while suffering from
WMDS....Where did I call anyone names??? I mean , it's not as if I called
you an arrogant elitist ass or anything , ya know??? But if the shoe fits ,
by all means , put it on and wear it with pride...LOL...

They're not only making money, they're improving their profit in this
I'm an occasional Aldi shopper; I appreciate how little I spend there.
I don't mind the limited selection (1,300 regular items) as that makes
shopping there a quick trip and greatly reduces impulse buying. The
canned stuff is perfectly fine for cooking with, like the diced
tomatoes, the broth, the beans. Cheese is cheap. I don't buy their
frozen crap, though. I bring my own bags or use their boxes, and I
usually have enough cash on me for my small total bill.
But closer to my home is a similarly designed local grocery with three
locations: limited hours, bags cost $.10 each, carts are available
free, credit cards are accepted, and the selection is better with the
same pricing. They've got a huge Goya section for the Puerto Rican
community and a huge Cento section for the Italian community, and I
like all that selection. The beef selection is limited (beef is
expensive in general), but the pork and chicken options are almost
endless and perfect for the price point. When they opened, the
special was pork shoulder butt for $.69 a lb. Plus they carry a few
name brands at much lower prices than the local mega-grocery. Produce
is very good, unlike at Aldi. This store seems to be trying to tap
into the potential Aldi customer base while offering a shopping
experience tailored to the local community at far better prices than
the local mega-grocery. I go there almost exclusively now and just
hit BJ's and the other grocery for stuff this store doesn't have.
It's a good time for them to expand, with all the empty commercial real
estate available. They could start with the 149 empty Mervyn's stores,
the Rite Aid stores that are beginning to close, or some of the empty
supermarket spaces that companies like Albertson's abandoned and that
have been empty for years.
Oh, you mean the mold store?
Back in my less affluent days I tried shopping at Aldi to stretch my
dollar. Most of the food I bought there would turn to mold within a
day or two. The day I found moldy food in the freezer section, was the
last day I bought anything in there.
