    I recently viewed the dvd “Is Walmart good for America” by PBS/Frontline.
    Here is another blogs summery of ‘opening price point’which is what is given in the example above. The Canadian newspaper The National Post did a story back and confermed the following when it examined the pricing at Walmart.

    WalMart’s Pricing Strategy
    In a recent program, PBS’ Frontline examined the inner workings of WalMart. One of the most interesting revelations had to do with the company’s pricing strategy, which was pioneered by legendary founder Sam Walton. The strategy is known as “opening price point,” and here’s how it works.

    WalMart goes to great lengths to have an alluring and unbeatable opening price point item in each category- from TV sets to cosmetics to bathing suits. These are the “unbelievable” prices that the company has become famous for (for example, a microwave oven for $14.67). The psychological impact of this opening price point is huge- consumers are led to believe that all of WalMart’s prices are this low. However, the reality is quite different. As confirmed in interviews with former store managers, WalMart does not have the lowest price on every item in every category. In fact, the company often has higher prices than other big retailers (i.e. you might get a better deal down the road at Target). However, in most cases the game is already over because consumers believe that WalMart’s prices are lower across the board. Furthermore, evidence shows that most shoppers don’t even buy the opening price point item. Instead, the low price lures them into the department, where they end up buying a brand name or higher quality item that they are more comfortable with.

    So here’s the point: as described in another post (Profit Drivers), pricing is one of the single most important factors that determine your company’s profitability. In fact, price will always have an impact that is two or three times greater than the other drivers. As a result, this cunningly simple strategy is one of the major reasons that WalMart has become the largest retailer in the world. The moral of the story? Pay close attention to your pricing strategy, it has a huge impact on the bottom line.

    I never thought walmart has the lowest prices on everything. Quite often stuff is on sale elsewhere cheaper. But for everyday none sale items the prices arent bad.

    Why are you so anti walmart Alex? Did u work there once and get fired or something lol!

    Alex seems to really hate Walmart … why not just ignore the Walmart posts? lol … we aren’t puppets you know, we still go to the store and decide if we want to spend X or not.

    Lots of people hate wal-mart. Alex doesn’t have to be a former employee to be one of them.

    As for me I only buy something there if it’s the cheapest price…but that’s true for pretty much every store for myself except Costco and they’re just the exception because of their in store electronics warranty.

    I hate walmart with a pashion, all it does is take money away from local buisneses dont you wonder why unemployment is getting so high. money you could have spent at a local buisness is instead sent to some billionair who doesnt even live anywhere near you. when you spend local, the money comes back to you because the local buisness will spend that money localy and so on.

    FUCK WALLMART

    This design is spectacular! You obviously know how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Excellent job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
