And the distinction between variety store and department store. I tend to
rank Walmart (especially the old-skool, not supercenter or neighborhood
market locations), Family Dollar, Dollar Tree and Dollar General as
variety stores, and Fred Meyer locations (the original, everything
"one-stop shopping" concept, not the newer standalone Fred Meyer
Express/Loaf-n-Jug/Tom Thumb/Quik Stop/Kwik Shop/Turkey Hill or standalone
Fred Meyer Jewelers locations), Target/SuperTarget as department stores
that happen to sell groceries.
