Future Bleak for Wal-Mart, Kmart, Radio Shack – Big Box Store Model Momentum Shifts

As our economy slides further into the abyss, the era of the huge mega stores will slide as well. You can put the blame squarely where it belongs, the printing of funny money which in turn killed the dollar. This will spell the end for the huge box store phenomenon that has grown like a cancerous growth, previously taking advantage of the easy credit and trade agreements with other countries that has basically enabled these monstrosities to fester for the last 25 or 30 years.

Because of our collapsing economy the middle class are just not buying like they used to. When you have huge gas price increases such as we have seen over these last months, together with the middle class disappearing, you can start to see why. Trucking will see a huge loss in independent operators because of the insane fuel prices. This in turn will hurt the distribution needs of these huge stores along with the easy credit needed to run them. The current economy cannot support this model any longer.

Trucks are basically a warehouse on wheels, a well timed system to further profits to the supplier and seller, cutting warehouse cost down dramatically. 2 million trucks a day command our roads to accommodate America’s distribution needs.

The good news is that this will eventually enable young upstarts to regroup into mom and pops again giving the American middle class a chance at redemption as the huge box store chains start to fall. Already, this is starting to happen. Wal-Mart, Radio shack and Kmart are closing stores because of the picky buying attitudes of the middle class. Soon we will see huge distribution centers along with supercenters sitting empty which originally cost billions to build.

These huge distribution centers were financed with banks that bundled toxic derivatives to further the credit scenario, something that was basically a “Three Card Monte” scheme that was destined to fail. These huge monoliths cannot survive without credit, suffice to say the “Three Card Monte” has just been shut down.

Again, what comes around goes around. Young families from all over our country will have a chance to start where they left off by building a future for themselves and their children. New stores will start to pop up as these huge monoliths start to fall. It’s only a matter of time. It might be years in the coming, but there is light at the end of the tunnel.

What will become of the huge distribution centers and supercenters that will be sitting empty; once filled with trucks and forklifts running around like a well run ant farm? God only knows…

    Yep, and no more greeters saying, “Hello, welcome to Costco. I love you.” lol Ala the movie, “Idiocracy”.

      Just found this NC

      “So after landing my new job as a Wal-Mart greeter, a good find for many retirees, I lasted less than a day…. About two hours into my first day on the job a very loud, unattractive, mean-acting woman walked into the store with her two kids, yelling obscenities at them all the way through the entrance.

      I said pleasantly, ‘Good morning and welcome to Wal-Mart. Nice children you have there. Are they twins?’ The ugly woman stopped yelling long enough to say, ‘H#ll no, they ain’t twins. The oldest one’s 9, and the other one’s 7. Why the h#ll would you think they’re twins? Are you blind or stupid?

      So I replied, “I’m neither blind nor stupid, Ma’am, I just couldn’t believe someone slept with you twice. Have a good day and thank you for shopping at Wal-Mart.’

      My supervisor said I probably wasn’t cut out for this line of work…”

      Couldn’t happen to a better bunch of guys. Their greed ultimately bit them in the a$$. They have consumed the consumer.

    “New stores will start to pop up as these huge monoliths start to fall”. Maybe. But then again, “young families” wanting to start these smaller businesses may find themselves overwhelmed/strangled by regulations; licenses, permit fees, high taxes, insurance, health care costs, etc. With the revenue from the big box stores gone, the local governments have to get their $$ from some where.

    That the big box stores are in trouble is good news in the long term. They have raped every community where they moved in.

    Every year they continued to diminish product selection as the bean counters from hell excluded the bottom sellers. Where there used to be a good variety of choices, now there are probably 3-5 items to choose from (except in electronics and guns).

    The manufacturing concerns that did not have huge markets were eaten up by China, where they have yet to learn the meaning of quality and quality control. These days, the crap made in China barely makes it home before it breaks.

    I can’t wait to see American manufacturing take center stage again. I sure miss the quality products, the productive, happy middle class and the dividend-paying stocks!

      Great points. The stock market is going to have to go through a monumental shift in rules before I ever invest in it, but points well taken. Only the rich with inside information ever make the money there I’m afraid. Las Vegas has better odds.

    The Wal Mart Greeter was way to polite! The Feminist movement is a commie dream to wreck family life. Remember the phrase of yesterday ‘Male Chauvinist Pig’. Now we have the commie Homosexual dream pushed by the Alphabet News promoting pedophilia and the sexual grotesque of Satanic vermin like Lady Gaga to disorientate the young. Conspiracy, Conflict and Control the three c’s of communism, like a cancer on society they never cease until they destroy all that is decent.

    Remember the definition whenever you Google:

    Hopefully some of these fugly strip mall megaplexes will go away. Where we live used to be the start of the way outs. Now it is a ten plus mile strip of cookie cutter strip malls, some with curbs in the way so it is almost impossible to pull into the mall unless you are going a certain direction. I shopped at PinkoMart 5-6years ago to get some toiletries and felt bad about supporting China’s economy afterward.
