It seems they are in fact offsetting the loss they incur through the bonus by closing stores or laying off employees. That may not be the case but it has the appearance. In addition, these layoffs and closings generally have a HUGE economical impact on the local community and local businesses. It is a rippling affect.

    I share your personal beef. It was a great idea initially but they needed to change in order to stay relevant to today's families.
    O I don't know for sure why they closed some of these stores. One in my state is being closed in a fairly large population area so it may be a location issue, a profitability issue, or they are going to try something different in that market. A one within 90 miles of me in another state that is closing doesn't make a lot of sense to me either, but it is in a cluster of compacted towns/cities so they may have decided that people who go there will likely drive to the other one. While not all of their business, ours seems to do well as a wholesaler for cigarettes and other things for retailers who perhaps do not get the same discount from their supplier that they could get buying at Sam's. I know the convenience store closest to me buys a lot of stuff from Walmart because the owner says that he can get it cheaper from them than from the area distributor on things like soap, toiletries, etc. He just has to go get it as opposed to having it delivered to the door.

    Right, common sense and dignity is what needs to be argued in support of an answer.

    ??? I'm agreeing. People give opinions, only some argue to defend them. Common sense and dignity are two attributes to argue for an opinion.
