I was shopping for some computer periphery this afternoon. I found that I’m not alone in appreciating Puerto Rico:
Identical shopping carts; 1 from Wal-Mart and one from “Competencia”. The Wal-Mart savings? 14%.
Puerto Rican shoppers can save 14%, or $12.68 on $90.70, by shopping at Wal-Mart. Further, because Wal-Mart exists, people who never shop there even save money as the competition is forced to keep pace.
