New Kohl's in Mountain View

Original post made by Shopper, Another Palo Alto neighborhood, on Sep 30, 2009

The new Kohl's opened today with few parking spots in the vicinity and long lines at the checkout. Many customers appeared to be applying for the store card for additional discounts and there were already good bargains to be had throughout the store. This store seems to be a good replacement for Mervyn's which many sorely miss. Any comments?

I am happy that Kohl's replaced Mervyn's. It's a clean store and offers good merchandise. However, be aware that they sometimes overprice so they can offer 50% off. And they often have Kohl's only toys/items so that they can print any retail price they desire. But there are good sale prices often which are not scammed.

I will not buy one thing at Kohl's, given the politics of Senator Kohl, who, now that he has benefitted from the capitalist system that made him quite wealthy, is working hard to stifle business at the Senate level through implementing as much socialist policy as possible. "Now that I have know what you can do!!" seems to be the policy of rich liberals.

I DO shop as often as possible at Whole Foods, though...

The policy of limousine liberals is to take as much as they can here and now, to ensure a comfortable retirement, and leave the sloppy mess for future generations.

Look at the H1B program, all it does is replace thousands Americans engineers with cheaper labor, the effect being lower expenses and more profit. As these positions are eliminated from the American public, the middle class is eliminated and no longer buys product made from said company employing H1Bs. Hence, there is no longer a viable economy, no tax revenue and everything turns to muck.

So will I buy anything from Kohls or Whole Foods? Only if you twist my arm, because at any moment my entire career may be eliminated in a second.

Well..Rob..if it helps...Whole Foods is run by someone who happens to agree with you..and me...about opportunity, and is NOT fighting to destroy the very system that made him rich. In other words, he wants the rest of us to have the same opportunities he had.

So I support it.

I just confirmed my suspicions that some of the housewares that Kohls has on their special sale right now are the regular prices at Target and BB&B. That sucks!

Don't miss out on the discussion!
