In this mornings paper Mariano says, " WE did not know that Wal-Mart was going to be so aggressive in the Milwaukee area". The whole friggin world knew it Chairman BOB!!..... are you kidding me? Pump and Dump........ real nice. Wisconsin people are not as dumb as you think. Just to bad you came up here and made them victims. Then brag about building 30 Mariano stores in Chicago ya wanna build. Don't even want to guess who will be supplying those stores. Thanks Chairman BOB
Walmart spelled this out in their Project Impact report 2 years ago. But the company sent no one to the conference to hear the presentation. Even if they did would they have listened? Perhaps the paper twisted his words. Really he can't be that out of touch to think Walmart was going to somehow bypass Milwaukee and Minnesota with their price promotion.
I am a little tired with the soft economy excuse. I wonder why all these competitors what to build 50 stores where the economy is soft. Well its not. The economy is booming and Wisconsin is one of the countries brightest spots. We have 50 new stores coming to Wisconsin. Doesn't sound like a soft economy to me.
