Why the need to buy magnets at retail stores?

Not surprising to see these answers.  But why?  In an article written by Bob Niedt titled 13 Reasons to Shop at Walmart, Even if you hate Walmart (credit to www.kiplinger.com) consumer savings expert Andrea Woroch mentions this : 'Walmart sells just about everything you could ever need so planning a trip to this big box retailer could make your life easier and reduce the need to go into multiple stores'. 

We couldn't argue with this statement.  The article continues : 'Changes are happening both online and in-store.  In a effort to accelerate its e-commerce business, Walmart paid $3 billion for online retail giant Jet.com.  It also spent $16 billion buying the Indian online retail powerhouse Flipart.  In addition, it revamped its once-clunky Walmart.com website.  The efforts are paying off.  According to eMarketer, Walmart's e-commerce sales in 2019 helped catapult it past eBay to claim second place for the first time.'


Is this really the best way to buy your magnets?

We understand the reasons why people prefer to buy in big box stores or on their websites, it makes life easy.

But is it really the best option when you need to find the best solution for your needs?

Here's an example:

Bob needs a TV.  His reflex?  Go to his favorite retailer's website and see what's there.  He looks and finds a 60'' HDTV and it's on special!  Bob found his deal right?

Not so quick!  What are the reason his favorite retailer can offer a 60'' HDTV at a low price?  Because they are the lower-quality versions than those sold elsewhere.

So Bob might have found himself a deal, but not necessary what he was looking for.

The same reasoning can be held for prepaid phone plan, phone accessories, appliances, vacuums, luggage, wood furniture, gift cards, ....

The reason is that one does not become a specialist in everything.  Think about your doctor, for example.  He might be a cardiologist, a expert on the heart and blood vessels.  Even if he's a cardiologist, would you consult him for your toothache?

Another proof that one is not an expert in everything is the following: go to your favorite retailer' site and search for magnets.  Pay attention to the rating and reviews.  What do you notice?  Too often we see ratings of 3 stars or less or comments from customers who are not satisfied.  Why?  Because there is no only one product that is the solution to all customers demands.
