Sears and K-mart are merging into a giant retailer, third behind Wal-Mart and Target, but with an eye on the prize. Sears has already opened three Wal-Mart SuperCenter type stores, which have done well, and with the teaming of K-mart, plan on opening more to go head-to-head with Wal-Mart. What does that mean? Lower prices for you!
Your dollar goes further, you have more disposable income, and you have greater choice. (And, for all of you ridiculous Wal-Mart haters out there, you have something else to hateóas if you didnít hate enough already and couldnít find something on your own.) What does the market, the largest capital/capitalistic market in the world think about the idea? Loviní it!
Sears stock up. K-mart stock up. Wal-Mart stock nicked, as maybe they will have to work a bit harder. (For those concerned about Teresa Kerry losing money on her Wal-Mart stock, donít worry, sheíll be okay.) Who will win this battle? You!
Go capitalism! Fight hard, and we win!
