    USM lost all the Walmarts two seasons ago. Store managers hire their own contractors again.

    That is what I thought but I had a store manager tell me it's back to USM. I'm trying to confirm.

    Classic Wall-mart strategic plan. They have put plenty of their vendors out of business over the years with their demand for cheap cheap pricing. They don't care about others.

    Word is that the local Wall-Mart super center goes for between 30 and 35k. The guys doing it are bidding everything like that, they are worse than nationals.

    That was a great article. I'm not saying I necessarily saying I want to plow Wall-mart for any specific reason, Ill plow any site that pays, I just use that as an example that people can relate to on pricing. If a Wall-Mart super center is 30k and should be 70k a Value home center that should be 7k is going for 3.

    Again great article, worth reading for everyone.
