      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Wal-Mart also has the distinction of having some of the most heinous business practices in America.

 

 

There was even a neat book written about this, called In Sam We Trust .

Walmart and the entire Walton family can go fuck themselves. I'm ashamed to admit I had to spend $7 there once for some cheap socks. It will be the last penny I ever spend in one of those god awful places.

Where's all this love for Walmart coming from? There's some good, cheap stuff in there. It is interesting how people associate quality with price when the consumer doesn't really have much else to go on in comparing similar products. It's just a fact of life that people blindly equate one with another.

So if I wanna buy a 68L Rubbermaid tote, should I pay $7.99 at London Drugs, or $5.95 for the same product at WalMart? cantfocus.gif

If you wanna buy a pair of Brand X crampons, should you pay $130 at Pro Mountain Sports (or some other independently/locally owned climbing shop) or $99.95 at some online place? Your decisions determine what kind of businesses survive.

 

Walmart sucks.

I hate going to Walmart, but I can't deny their insanely low prices.

If Walmart sucks so bad, why does it do so well? Thumbs up to Walmart in my opinion. People decide with their money.

 

The market dictates.

Or take some time to think about, and research, what the real impacts and cost of your choices are. Just coz some places are suck, doesn't mean they all are. boxing_smiley.gif

 

I can't deny the attraction of saving money though... It's just that some things seem cheap, but aren't.

FS you sure like to throw that hippie shit around when people dont agree with you!

Walmart sucks.I was woking in Susanville Ca. and it was sad.Downtown was just about folded up because of wally world.The hunting store,the fishing store and others had to close because everyone passing through wanted to save a buck.Read the discrimination and anti union stories before you start calling everyone a hippie.I for one am not a god damn hippie and quite frankly hate most of those double talkin back stabbin god forsaken motherfuckers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

www.WALMARTWATCH.COM

You may get a lower price. But the poor old guy thats behinde the counter at the local fly shop and knows the local rivers like the back of his hand might not be there

next week becuse he couldnt afford to buy 2 million fly rods and discount them 2 dollars.

STOP THE BLIND CONSUMER CRAP GOING ON IN THIS COUNTRY.START SUPPORTING WORKING FAMILIES madgo_ron.gif

start supporting working families? now that is jsut crap... like people who work at wall mart dont have families? and i dont give a shit about unions...i used to belng to one adn they are rabel-rousing war mongerers... the union leaders are just out to make a fast buck in "our" interests... like it or not we are in a capitolist society... i will pay extra (likein my local gear shops thread [cascade crags]) but only if i get something extra out of it... like you said about the fly shop... but sho the fuck cares about a fucking rubbermaid tub (as noted earlier)? what, is someone gonna tell me how to properly care for my tub? dont think so. I patronize the little guys if i need help picking something out or value the shor/ owner, but to just pay extra for shits and giggles... i think i'll pass...
