I don't shop at Walmart's grocery stores ... But I don't believe that
Walmart is pushing dry catfood, wet catfood, cat litter, fish tank
pumps and other accessories, or dandruff hair care products over the
last two years, are they?

I'm one of those people that prices things out at different stores. I
don't blow an 8 hour day looking to save $0.25 on a $5 product, but
when I do buy something, I write down the price. When I go to another
store that carries the product, if it's cheaper I write down the new

Walmart is consistently the cheapest on those products, for example.

Why is a person who plays the piano called a pianist,
but a person who drives a race car isn't called a racist?
