I have to say, I've walked through WalMart, and I have a much easier time finding Made in the U.S. items there than other stores - namely, Target, Kmart, Fred Meyer, Costco...Last winter my aunt who lives in Colorado but called Corvallis home for many years was proud to have purchased her Christmas Tree at WalMart - it came from a tree farm outside of Corvallis.Sure, I don't like a lot of WalMart policies (and I don't shop there very often for a variety of reasons...it's been months since I've set foot inside a WalMart) but a lot of the WalMart=China bashing is without merit. And Target, like WalMart, is anti-union and full of part-timers but everyone seems to give Target a free pass. Freddy's is unionized but has a long history of only having the minimum number of full-time, benefits eligible shifts - most everyone I worked with at Freddy's were part-timers.At Freddy's...try to figure out where their bread comes from (because it's all store labels.) At WalMart, it's easy: it's all Franz bread, baked in Portland.
Say NO!! We don't want your buy low, sell low policies!! Only the Wal-Mart Execs benefit, while their workers make less than Unemployment, and are able to collect food stamps. Thats NOT sustainable!
Eric, not sure what you're talking about; Fred Meyer carries lots of different brands of bread. You can even get "Dave's Killer Bread" at Fred Meyer.
... and bread generally is baked locally (even buns for places like McDonald's); simply because the short shelf life implies that it cannot be shipped large distances.
