Who buys guns at Wal-mart because I've noticed that guns are cheaper there.

    Most are pretty silly answers. Seriously. Do you really think just because you don't live in Bentonville, Arkansas, that your local Walmart doesn't support your local economy? One needn't have a degree in finance to know the answer. There are a few drawbacks to Walmart. #1, is the number of Chinese made products. #2, is the level of customer service with certain items. #3, Walmart contributes to the destruction of downtowns. I purchase from Walmart and other local retailers. Yes, LGS is one of those local retailers. For folks to say they don't shop Walmart might sound dandy to some, but for most, it's not reality. Jeans, food, towels, and electronics, among many other things, are purchased by most folks from their local Walmart.

      If you think WalMart isn't part of your local ecconomy unless you live in bentonville, then explain where the money goes that locals earn working there. Despite all the complaints about putting mom and pop stores out of business, which is true, the Mom and Pop stores rarely employ a couple hundred people. Further more the money you save on groceries can be spent to support local small business if you want. If Walmart didnt provide a service that most people wanted they wouldn't survive and the notion you save only pennies there doesn't explain why people would switch to them from locally owned stores. Let's face it, there are few of any locally owned grocers these days. The last one in my area closed this year and there isn't a Walmart within 30 miles. Chain grocers did away with locally owned stores. Not walmart. Local auto parts stores are fading fast because they cant compete with Orielys. The guns at Walmart are the same as you buy any where else and if they don't have what you want they can likely order it. Chain stores of all kinds put local owners in a bad position unless the locals offer something that people are willing to pay for that chains dont offer. Walmart isn't doing anything that Cabellas or Safeway does. They try to offer cheaper prices to get your business. When they fail to do that someone else will come along.
