heh heh...Costco....you have to pay an annual membership fee!....heh heh..just to be able to buy GIANT sizes.Yeah...the get more revenue per employee...but you buy more stuff in bulk!.... Costco doesn't sell a pack of napkins...you've got to buy a years supply!.......or a small container of sugar..you need to buy ten pounds or more. Same for cereal.....Most folks don't need giant sizes and shop at Walmart......and most folks don't even have to money to buy and waste half of what they buy at Costco.....Then you compare the two? ONe selling one and two size items vs someone selling in gallons and 20 packs and boxes that weigh 10 or 20 lbs each? gimme a break. Two different models. It's like bulk vs individual service. want 10,000 gallons of gas? Heck you can get it for 40c a gallon less.......than buying 10 gallons....I shop at the Walmarts here all the time.....the neighborhood market and two super centers...... buy my groceries and some other stuff there. Get my prescriptions filled. 10 buck generics.....What did you expect when government mandated $14,000 insurance policies for family coverage for workers making $18,000 a year? or maybe 25,000 a year type employees? The entire fast food industry will shift to mostly part timers....under 30 hours......That means a large percentage of the population will see their income drop and their benefits eliminated due to ObamaKare....but they can get a second or third part time job to make ends meet...t.
