This is directed to Wild, and others who acknowledge the superiority of WalMart stock and their business.

What I want to know from everyone, is why did Kmart go down while Wal mart went up? Look at Sears, Penney's & the gone-but-not-forgotten Montgomery Wards? Remember how Woolworth's followed Kresge's lead to create K Mart by creating Woolco? (or do any of you remember that?)

I also find it interesting that what used to be the 5 & 10 stores have now sort of become "dollar stores" But they are not nearly so cool & good. Without the quick lunch counter.
I watched the Woolworth Family Biography on A&E & loved it.....

(yeah. I"M nearly 50)
