.......little so they can bump there price to just under the basic value of other companies selling the same or a comparable product. Wal Mart actully has over a 200% markup on a lot of stuff they sell. Look at Xbox's and PS2's. 4 cents cheaper than other places, but it cost's them over 20 dollars less per unit than other suppliers, the reason is the capacitors and resistors are cheaper, the drive bay motors are cheaper quality, it all adds up but the consumer is paying only 4 cents less. Also with guns and walmart. look at a winchester rifle price guide, there is a wal mart price and a regular price for each gun, Wal Mart guns have a couple of diffrent parts and there made cheaper than regularly. My mom has worked For Wal Mart for 10 years, so she knows the in's outs and what they do, how they do it.
You betcha Matt.... a lot of their stuff is of lesser quality..... but not many people will pay full price. Manufacturers have to do that or Wal Mart will put them out of business and they know it. WM has done it many times to many companies.
