1 - Proof?
2 - Does it matter? Of the many Walmarts I've been in (as a kid I did a lot of traveling, parental types liked Walmart prices) only two would I of been willing to by their produce after looking at it from 20 feet away. And both were brand new stores at the time.
3 - I've never seen evidence of that, and until recently we had three Walmarts. Now it's just two, (although one of the two shut down ones is simply being remodeled).
4 - And a good amount of that cheap stuff is "Made for Walmart" - aka specifically made cheaper so the manufacturers can meet Walmart's demands for price while still making money.
5 - There have been many complaints that Walmart increases the burden on state programs, as many of their employees are without benefits due to how the stores schedule them or simply don't offer benefits.
6 - Before one of the Walmarts closed, several shops went out of business nearby (the Walmart closed because a nearby Super opening). The new Walmart has had 1 new store open near by, and it's a paint store that had another location that was quite busy on it's own.
7 - While the first couple pages of results didn't have anything too recent, googling "Walmart Lock-ins" can be scary.
8 - Except, in my experience, customer service. If I want everything all in one place AND CS, I got to Fred Meyers. (Note, neither place tends to be friendly to shoe sizes over 13, I'll admit).
9 - Many places price match. And of course they price match when you find a lower price - who would advertise a service of RAISING their prices to match their competitor?
10 - I shouldn't have to go above the store level to get something resembling a satisfactory resolution.
