WSJ study shows Wal-Mart cheaper than dollar stores
NEW YORK (WKRC) -- A study by the Wall-Street Journal firm Wolfe Research revealed that Wal-Mart actually has better deals than dollar stores.
It says a typical basket of goods from Wal-Mart is 4 percent cheaper than the same basket at Dollar General and 12 percent cheaper than Family Dollar.
The survey was done in Pikeville, North Carolina.
One of the biggest reasons for the results is Wal-Mart's size.
90 percent of Americans live within 15 minutes of a Wal-Mart, but, analysts say a potential merger between Dollar General and Family Dollar would close that gap.
