    How come the price of New York Strip steaks and the local supermarket
    (Giant Eagle) is twice as much per pound as it is at Sam's??

    Because Sam's is owned by the Walton family who also own WalMart... if
    that doesn't answer your question... Kev

    Usually, when someone asks a question whose answer is ridiculously obvious,
    the assumption is that the person is a troll, posting the question just to
    make noise. Do you really now know why various merchants sell meat at
    different prices???

    Here, Sam's is one of the more expensive places to buy meat, and it
    looks a little better (not much) than what's in the supermarkets. The
    supermarkets all sell watered-down Wal-mart meat now.
