Coupons are also a waste of money. I'd vote for no more coupons in exchange for reducing prices slightly on each product. They would even be saving trees as they saved money.

I getrepparttar feeling these stores are not even trying to run efficiently.

Look forrepparttar 113177 savings card at a store near you and run to a competitor with a smarter business plan.
