Why Costco Is Walloping Wal-Mart

In anticipation of the warehouse store's earnings, it's worth nothing there's much more to its stock than low prices

Costco is coming to Coralville! -mango- Just a 30 mile drive away...


Is Costco membership still a good deal?


•U.S. individual (Gold Star) memberships and business memberships in the U.S. and Canada will cost $55 a year, up $5. It's the first fee increase since 2006.
•Executive members, who earn cash back on what they spend in the stores, will pay $110, up by $10, the first fee increase for them since 1997. Also, The Seattle Times reports that "the maximum 2% reward tied to the executive membership will rise from $500 to $750."
•The higher rates go into effect Nov. 1 for new memberships, so if you're planning to join, do it now.
•For current members, the higher rates take effect whenever they renew after Jan. 1.

Bleach, Pine-Sol thrown in fight at Baltimore Co. Walmart

A woman poured bleach and Pine-Sol on a Walmart customer in southern Baltimore County, police said, in an incident that closed down the store for several hours Saturday and sent 19 to area hospitals.

The suspect, Theresa Monique Jefferson, 33, followed another woman into the store and assaulted her, county police spokesman Shawn Vinson said in an email. She later turned herself in and was arrested.

The two women knew each other and were involved in a continuing dispute, Vinson said.

The victim's boyfriend has a child with Jefferson, who is from the Lansdowne-Baltimore Highlands community of Baltimore County, police said.

Jefferson has been charged with first- and second-degree assault, theft of items worth less than $100 and malicious destruction of property, police said. She is being held at the Baltimore County Detention Center on $350,000 bail.

Victim information was still being determined Saturday evening, Vinson said.

The Baltimore County Fire Department's fire and medic units, who arrived on the scene just after 11 a.m., requested the hazardous materials team a short time later because of complaints about watery eyes and other injuries, said spokesman Glenn Blackwell.

One person was taken to the Wilmer Eye Institute for a potentially serious injury, while 18 others were taken to area hospitals, including Baltimore Washington Medical Center, Harbor Hospital, Northwest Hospital Center and St. Agnes Hospital, Blackwell said.

The store at the Lansdowne Station shopping center was evacuated and closed. The store reopened at 2 p.m. after employees cleaned up and ventilated the area, said Walmart spokeswoman Dianna Gee. Three employees suffered minor respiratory problems, she said.

"This is obviously not the type of behavior that we would expect from people at our stores," Gee said. "And we want to apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused other customers."

Baltimore County officials said ammonia had been thrown as well. Mixing ammonia and bleach can create a toxic gas that could lead to choking or other breathing problems.

Walmart to Close All Its Marketside Stores

CHANDLER, Ariz. -- Walmart plans to shut down all of its Marketside stores later this month, according to a Mouth by Southwest report. The locations -- all in Arizona -- will close Oct. 21.

This abruptly ends the behemoth chain's first experiment with smaller-sized stores. The company launched the Marketside format in 2008 when it opened stores in Mesa, Chandler, Gilbert and Tempe, Ariz. In contrast to a typical Walmart Supercenter, Marketside stores are small grocery stores that specialize in prepared meals and fresh food, according to the company's website.

However, the store closings do not leave Walmart with only large stores. The retailer continues to operate and build its smaller Walmart Express stores in test markets in Richfield, N.C., Arkansas and Chicago.

According to the libs, the average Walmart worker is paid chump change and couldn't afford health insurance, let along put a roof over their family heads. On the other hand, countless folks worked at Walmart to bring in a second income for the household and through stock options now have a million plus nest egg.

Wal-Mart Cuts Some Health Care Benefits

In Wal-Mart’s 2012 health offerings, premiums will increase for some plans by more than 40 percent, although many of their workers pay relatively low premiums in comparison to more generous plans offered by other employers. But many Wal-Mart employees complain that their low premiums are accompanied by high deductibles that sometimes exceed 20 percent of their annual pay.

Wal-Mart’s new health offerings will require many employees who smoke to pay a significant penalty. They will be required to pay an extra $10 to $90 each pay period — $260 to $2,340 a year — if they want health coverage.

Source on that million dollar nest egg???

I've had a lot of part-time jobs, and have never been offered insurance at any one of them...there's even been a few full-time jobs with no insurance option...

Citing rising costs, Wal-Mart, the nation’s largest private employer, told its employees this week that all future part-time employees who work less than 24 hours a week on average will no longer qualify for any of the company’s health insurance plans.

Be aware that if you order from web site(s) for the Holidays, either be home or have a secure location for the UPS/Fedex driver to drop off the boxes. There will be lowlives roaming streets looking for stuff to grab and run.

Wal-Mart ups the ante in holiday price matching

The discounter said Monday it will match prices on many of its products. Shoppers who buy something at a Walmart store between Nov. 1 and Dec. 25, but then find the identical product elsewhere for less, can get a gift card in the amount of the difference.

The offer excludes some items, such as groceries.

To qualify, shoppers need to bring in the original Wal-Mart receipt and the local competitor's print ad. Gift cards will not be given out after Dec. 25.

Attention Walmart Patients … Healthcare in Aisle 4?

Walmart has been working under the radar (not anymore) to be the “largest provider of primary healthcare services in the nation,” according to a request for healthcare partners leaked online today by NPR.

The 14-page request details the superstore’s mission to “expand access to high quality health services” and “dramatically lower the cost of healthcare.”

The plan would see primary care clinics popping up throughout the Walmart’s 3,500-store empire just in time for health care reform, which will mean millions more insured customers.

Back before tags with a scannable bar code, I witness my fair share of low lives switching price tags to cheat the store. I was with friends shopping with one guy's older sister and she pulled the 'switch' crap, got caught and we were all kicked out of the store. Also some folks seem only to want to buy the item without a tag. The cashier will ask, I'll hear some crap it's on clearance and everyone behind this clown must be held up waiting for a price check. Usually after a store employee shows up with the correct price, the low life doesn't want the item.
