>> My point was only that the few WalMart "hot chicks" have stepped up from WalMart to the mall. I felt that that was because of upward mobility to the mall; which implies that either there are more jobs there or better paying jobs somewhere else. I will admit that WalMart hasn't yet returned to the older, tattooed, ex-gang types at the cashier, so good times aren't here yet. <<

Not intending to make a political point here, but keep in mind that the "luxury" sector and high end merchandise sales are doing quite well and we have a very bifurcated economy in that respect. Seems that the well-to-do aren't pulling back as much as the rest of us have felt the need to.
