Wal-Mart demoralizes cash strapped Americans


  • Liz Kelly 5 years ago

    What I think the real tragedy is here, is that we have become so driven by consumerism and feeling like what we buy is what we are, that an intelligent woman like yourself is concerned that the products in her medicine cabinet don't look nice enough. (I'm with you on being anti-Wal-Mart, though!)

    this is the most ridiculous article I have read lately....I don't have to buy the generic brands, but I have for years......I know that most of them are the same as the name brands except for the father worked a meat packer all his life and the only difference in the name brand and the store brand was the package......who gives a rip about what folks think about whats in your buggy or cabinets? that's crazy.....and as far a anti Walmart is concerned.....that's crazy too.

    I don't care what color the box is. I want to know why the prices went up 50 to 80% when the went to the white boxes. Is whit die more expensive than colored die?

    This isn't an anti-Wal-mart article, it's simply about how Wal-Mart made their packaging...well...uglier! I noticed it, too. In the past several months, their packaging went from colored, with an actual design scheme to white, with bland, bold letters. It was a terrible idea, but I guess their intention was to save on packaging. I'm not going to quit buying Great Value brand, but that wasn't a consumer-friendly move. Most of their store brand products are now in plain, white packaging with plain letters, and it's really easy to point out. The old packaging was a bit more difficult to find, because it blended in so well with all the rest. I'm glad I'm not the only one who noticed!
