I'm not loving walmart
Ever wonder why Walmart has such cheap prices? Well if you think that it's because they make low quality products with well established labels... DING DING your right.
And a major manufacturer is saying no! If you can't see that link here is the original article from FastCompany
Snapper, the lawn mower company, has been selling at walmart, but now have pulled the products from the shelves. Snapper is a well established company, with quality lawn mowers, but have brought down the price and quality in order to be sold at walmart. What will happen in a few years is the company will lose money by selling at walmart, and the good rep they have.
If you think the head offices at walmart, whose ceo's are the wealthiest people in the us, Lee Scott Jr make $17.5 million a year, would have a prestigous office, reading this article you find out that they have vistors sit on lawn chairs, sounds so seedy.
A great movie, actually a few movies, have come out to show the truth, the high cost of low price
Basically, when a walmart moves into town, most of those neighborhood shops go out of business because they can't beat the prices. The wealth has been taken out of the neighborhood and given to those few at the top of walmart. The Corporation is another great movie that sheds much needed light on the american corporations, and just how low they will go to get your dollar.
