why can't i shop online? uuhh.... no way to. x: i can browse sites all i want, but without money in my paypal, or a verified paypal, i can't shop. i agree that walmart's one of the biggest places out there, and that they do tend to run smaller stores away, but they're not the lowest. not by far. i've found items way cheaper at other places. their pet supplies are a good example. shoot, their bettas are a good example!
for Remy, who was a veil i tried to save, i payed $5. that's $4.something with tax. if i'd bought a veil at the pet store i buy all my bettas from, i'd pay about $0.50 less, or so(i'm horrid at math). their crowns, i'd pay nearly $9 at walmart, at the pet store? same price as veil. their tanks, i paid a little over $20 for the 1.5 i have Caroline in. at another store, i'd pay a few bux less.
walmart is NOT cheap. but, often times, they're all you can do. other stores are too far to drive, or just aren't around here(we only have Walmart, a crappy pet store that has almost NO items for fish and caters to mostly dogs, Pet Lovers. PetSamart and PetCo are both almost an hour away), or is the only place to buy an item. as much as i dislike their care of fish, the fish aren't what makes them the big money. it's everything else. the DVDs, the clothes, the plants, ect. pets and pet care items, are pretty low on what gets them money.
