IMO these low end stores won't have an impact until cheap players come along, ie $100 or less. They are the last place I'd buy any kind of cutting edge or hi-end equipment from.
I wouldn't go to a Wal*Mart for any reason.
I hope this is for ideological reasons and not those of social status.
I went there once to see what it was like.
Customers had torn through the clothes and it looked worse than a garage sale.
In spite of that, I took a few selections to the quick checkout line.
Customers ahead of me chose that line to have long discussions about returning items or something.
I relaxed my hands and those items fell to the floor and I walked out never to return.
Ideological or status? Probably status.
I do not seek to augment my self-perceived status through my shopping selections.
OTOH, I don't find those issues in stores that do not cater to the trash class.
