    customers have been brainwashed to believe they are the cheapest on these items so people do not check and if people do not check pricing, they can raise their prices.  Actually Walmart has never been the cheapest on many items but they get people to come in to buy their lost leaders and they make it up on other items.

      may indeed be gone.I've relatives living rurally for whom WalMart has become the only store within miles. I am always struck when visiting by how high the grocery prices are for the quality offered.Of course their old grocery stores were also crappy but at least they competed against each other a little. Now it is just Wally's.
