One of the problems with buying from WallyWorld is that you are buying
seconds or over/unders. You are also buying last seasons whatevers.
WallyWorld buys by warehouse lots and takes whatever they supply. Because
they buy overs/unders you are never guaranteed the items in their sales
catelogs and frequently they won't give rainchecks.
I'll pay a couple of dollars more for quality and have it last.
BTW, not gossip, my sister worked for corporate and quite because of what
she learned during the bigwig meetings!
