When we arrived in the much smaller town of Bentonville in 1950, we found almost no spirit ofcompetition. A few retailers were scattered around the square, but each of them had sort of carved outtheir niche, and that was that. If a store didn't have something the customer wanted, he or she would justhave to drive to Rogers, or Springdale, or very possibly on into Fayetteville. Using some of the things wehad learned in Newport, I'd have to say we changed that way of thinking right off and generally sparkedup the atmosphere around town. "My store wasn't making much money, and we were starting to get competition from Gibson's, whichalso had a little store on the square down there. It was obvious that their discounting thing was working,and they were pulling everybody in with their health and beauty aidsHBA we call it. So I thought, 'Well,why don't I try that in my variety store' I changed the whole store around and got McKesson-Robbinsdown in price and put in a bunch of over-the-counter drugs. It was the first discount department in ourcompany, the health and beauty aids department at the east side of the square in Fayetteville. But I likedto have lost my best friend over that one. Charlie Baum liked to have had a heart attack. He thought Iwas trying to undercut him. You got to understand that Charlie is one of the most competitive peoplewho ever lived. He'll fight you tooth and toenail at bridge, or anything. I was just trying to see where itmight lead us. Anyway, Sam knew all about it, and he said, 'Go ahead and try it.' He would always trythings like that. He was always open to suggestions, and that's one reason he's been such a success. He'sstill that way."When I started buying for Wal-Mart, I would often take Claude along with me. Pretty soon, we madehim Wal-Mart's general merchandise manager. He didn't have any more experience at being a generalmerchandise manager than the guy off the street. He was a store manager, but we didn't have anybodyelse so he became general merchandise manager. I don't even know when we finally brought our firstprofessional buyer, or even someone who had ever had any buying experience, into the company, but itwas years later. Truthfully, though, talking about this embarrasses me a good bit because I worry that it seems like I'mbragging or trying to make myself out to be some big hero. It particularly bothers me because I learned along time ago that exercising your ego in public is definitely not the way to build an effective organization. 安微福彩快3时时彩网 "My store wasn't making much money, and we were starting to get competition from Gibson's, whichalso had a little store on the square down there.
