    I'm surprised they've lasted this long between Walmart and Amazon.

    its crazy nobody talks about the housing costs being extreme. Its like are we going to keep boosting pay while housing still increases in cost? Why not get that in check? The min wage increase will be null and void in another decade. Are we gonna then have to aim for 21 dollar minimum wage?

    i remember hearing in the past they were going to move to a model where manufactures just lease show room space, and even provide their own employees/specialist to work there and talk about the products.
