i guess you post this stuff spl because you have a bug about them selling ice cream and they are competition. Remember WalMart started out small too and became very successful.

To continually bash a store that has become successful, has hired lots of people unable to find a job elsewhere for that matter, given customers discounted prices on a lot of items and has stayed in business for a long time, has a stock listed on the NYSE and paid dividends and has increased value for shareholders(I am one of them), and has complied with all laws......well, I think it's ridiculous.

There are other similar stores out there in size and retail jobs have a lot of turnover but it hasn't become fashionable to bash them, such as Target, Whole Foods, and other trendy places to shop.
