The Walmartization of America (Savings Catcher)

I saw this Walmart advertisement in the Weekend edition of the Los Angeles Times:

We’ll match the price of any local competitor’s printed ad for an identical product. Also, Savings Catcher compares the price you paid for eligible items at Walmart with advertised prices from top stores in your area. If we find a lower advertised price, we’ll give you a Walmart eGift Card for the difference Restrictions apply. See Walmart.com/savingscatcher for details.”

Translation: We seek to destroy all local small businesses across America with cutthroat big business tactics. Bring us their advertisements and we will pull the rug out from under them! This ad smacks of John D. Rockefeller’s Standard Oil technique of running little guys out of town.
