Also, I think those associates in our company who believe in our ideals and our goals and get with theprogram have felt some spiritual satisfactionin the psychological rather than the religious senseout of thewhole experience. They learn to stand up tall and look people in the eye and speak to them, and they feelbetter about themselves, and once they start gaining confidence there's no reason they can't keep onimproving themselves. Many of them decide they want to go to college, or to manage a store, or takewhat they've learned and start their own business, or do a good job and take pride in that. Wal-Mart hashelped their pocketbooks and their self-esteem. There are certainly some union folks and somemiddlemen out there who wouldn't agree with me, but I believe that millions of people are better offtoday than they would have been if Wal-Mart had never existed. So I am just awfully proud of the wholedeal, and I feel good about how I chose to expend my energies in this life. What are you doing here' I said, 'I'm shopping. What areyou doing' And he said, 'Oh, this is just partof the educational process. That's all.' Of course, he's still doing the same thing today, except he uses hislittle tape recorder."I guess everybody who knew I was going ahead with the discounting idea on my own really did think I'dcompletely lost my mind. I laugh now when I look back on Wal-Mart's beginning. In 1962, the discountindustry was fairly young and full of high-living, big-spending promoters driving around in Cadillacsguyslike Herb Gibsonwho had the world by the tail. But it had very few of what you'd call goodoperatorsuntil 1962, the year which turned out to be the big one for discounting. In that year, fourcompanies that I know of started discount chains. S. S. Kresge, a big, 800-store variety chain, opened adiscount store in Garden City, Michigan, and called it Kmart. F. W. Woolworth, the granddaddy of themall, started its Woolco chain. Dayton-Hudson out of Minneapolis opened its first Target store. And someindependent down in Rogers, Arkansas, opened something called a Wal-Mart. At the time, and for quitea while after that, I can guarantee you that hardly anybody noticed that last guy. Heck, within five years,Kmart had 250 stores to our 19, and sales of more than $800 million to our $9 million. Here's whatmakes me laugh today: it would have been absolutely impossible to convince anybody back then that inthirty years most all of the early discounters would be gone, that three of these four new chains would bethe biggest, best-run operators in the business, that the one to fold up would be Woolco, and that thebiggest, most profitable one would be the one down in Arkansas. Sometimes even I have troublebelieving it. � I began to hear talk of the early discounterscompanies like Ann & Hope, whose founder, Marty Chase,is generally considered the father of discounting. Spartan's and Mammoth Mart and Two Guys fromHarrison and Zayre and Arlan's were all starting up in the Northeast, and I remembered that lesson I'dlearned a long time ago in Newport with the panties selling in such huge volume when they were priced at$1.00, instead of $1.20. So I started running all over the country, studying the concept from the millstores in the East to California, where Sol Price started his Fed-Mart in 1955. � � 日本邪恶少女漫画h_工口漫画_动漫本子_里番色列漫画大全_肉番_邪恶家 � � Chapter 9 Building the Partnership � �
