Super Size Me Sam

Sam Walton pioneered the "supersize me" shopping era. Sam's Club was the ultimate shopping experience for the Supersize Me Era. The shopping carts were massive. The product volume per package was massive. You couldn't walk out of the store without two baskets full of "mega-stuff". And best of all, you left the store "stuffed" after eating all of the samples. Is Sam's Club experiencing the end of the era??

"Walmart Stores Inc. announced Sunday that it is laying off roughly 10 percent of its work force at its Sam's Club warehouse stores, or about 11,000 jobs, news sources said."
