you think it's the stores ? wouldn't you think with that many stores around the demand wouldn't be so great therefore everything would be cheaper ?

If logical prevailed, yes I do believe you would be right Middie

Could you imagine the days of an all-purpose general store?

Question

Walmart and Kmart are not the same store MRSMAC.

We need for kids to play together again they just won't be ready to work together, Not Nearly as social as we were as Kids. And I really miss the store you just went to for one type of thing. They knew about the produced and cared about the Customer. Am I wrong on This ?

do you think, it`s good if you make everything cheaper and cheaper?
doesn't our food need some quality which must be paid somehow?
it might be better to search for the small "Tante-Emma-Laden" (as we say in germany) where things are a bit more expensive but worth every cent? Where you still have someone in front of you who helps you?

Sad but true a lot of the time

Do you think we should switch the subject from work to something more fun?
