    I hate to see some of them go but this is pure Retail Darwinism. The malls that we lament now are the things that killed the stores we used to go to when we were kids.

    No. I do not want to sample the obscure bit of meat you have there on that toothpick ....... I'll sit at home in my underwear eating a grinder while I shop on Amazon.

    Walmart has a 32% markup and most retailers use 50%. I heard recently The Home Depot is 30%.
