  •  Looks to me like folks are going to the "Dollar" (11+ / 0-)

    stores for the stuff instead of wall-mart

    http://www.nytimes.com/...

    Wal-Mart may have become the premier place to shop for Americans struggling through a severe recession, but the giant chain has competition nipping at its heels.

    The nation’s dollar stores, those once-dowdy chains that lured shoppers by selling some or all of their merchandise for $1, are suddenly hot. They are busily opening new stores, outfitting existing stores with refrigerators and freezers, and sprucing up their aisles with better lighting, fresh paint and new signs.

    And while most big retail chains are closing stores and radically cutting back on new outlets, the dollar chains are planning to open hundreds of stores this year in some of the best locations to which they have ever had access.

      Otherwise I am stuck with a bottle of 100 that will go bad before I use more than a dozen of them.  Its not just cheaper but more cost effective.  

      Under capitalism man exploits man, under communism the roles are reversed.
