"the quality of products has also steadily IMPROVED" Where did you get THAT idea? I bought a "Rival" 4 slice toaster from WalMart;I chose that brand because my last one worked great and lasted 12 years. made some toast to go with breakfast. Each slice had two burned strips on each side,and was completely untoasted in between. I took it back,and exchanged it for another one. Same thing happened. Then, I noticed on its label,"Made for WalMart". This isn't the first time I've been "underwhelmed" by WalMart's "Quality" merchandise. They can forget about seeing another dollar of mine-I'd rather put off a purchase and save up my money for a GOOD quality toaster,not WalJunk.

Once again I am here to sing the praises of Walmart. Over the years I have done so on many occasions.

Many misguided souls take the other side. They blame Walmart for ruining mom and pop grocery stores, mom and pop hardware stores, etc.

Not me, I praise cheaper prices. Moreover, it's what consumers voted for with there hard-earned dollars.

If anyone wants to pay more for stuff, all they have to do is shop at a mom and pop hardware...
