An article on SmartMoney.com discusses reasons why we shouldn't purchase products at warehouses such as Sam's Club, and how we could receive more for our money if we just shopped at our local stores. The article brings up the point of using coupons along with local sales to save money. Also, many warehouses don't sell a large selection of name brands, so you will often end up purchasing a brand you don't like or that you're not familiar with. What if you don't like it once you buy it? Then you're stuck with a ton of that item. Lastly, think of rationality. Are you actually going to go through 200 fish sticks before they expire or get frost bit in your freezer? Many people could just products by buying in more rational numbers instead of throwing away a bulk of un-used product. So are warehouses having a negative effect on consumer purchase decisions? Do you think comsumers are losing money and wasting products by purchasing at warehouses?
