In walks Mr. Pessimism

They, that is walmart likely says through a press release that it will create 95 jobs, but what will happen after about a month? My guess is the 95 will downsize to likely half the original number.

Um

Those stores can't run on 47.5 people. There are more people behind the scenes in wal mart than cashiers.

Overnight stockers, human resources, cash office, loss prevention, inventory and price change managers etc.

No mention of hourly pay

With all the talk of the business cost of raising the minimum wage, it is interesting that Costco seems to be able to match Walmart prices while paying their workers considerably more. http://www.fool.com/investing/general/2014/03/12/costco-vs-wal-mart-high...

To address my first comment

To address my first comment and I'll admit I am biased against Wal-Mart, but I remember when Kroger at Salem & Prince opened and it cut its work force after about a month because it didn't need all the people it hired for grand opening. I have seen that scenario repeat itself in other retailers time and again. It's a thing they due to produce a favorable image of the store to those customers who are likely to return.

Got to love Marketing.

As for Costco... It would be heaven to see a that retailer come to town and be its business model replicated.

Also, I don't know who has shopped at the Neighborhood Market at Prince & Ferris but as far a cashiers every time I have been in there which has been 4 times typically in the afternoon on a weekend I have only seen 2 cashiers and several self-checkouts.

It is good you have all the

It is good you have all the knowledge about Wal Mart's SOP. Seems to me like you should go apply for a manager position in Greenbrier with probable aspirations of CEO

hmmm

"I'll admit I am biased against Wal-Mart"

Ya think?

"As for Costco... It would be heaven to see a that retailer come to town and be its business model replicated."

I'm sure that the slaves that Charoen Pokphand (CP) Foods (provider of seafood to Costco) use will be glad you want to increase Costco's business footprint.
