    $DG - if $WMT is reporting low revenue, isn't it possible their customers are continuing their switch to dollar stores, making $DG Q higher?

      : We have both here. I don't see 'em as direct competitors. $DG is higher priced but have more stores = more convenient, esp w high gas prices

      : Gas definitely an issue. Seems $ stores sunk on WMT announcement couple weeks back, just wondering if that's maybe good news for trade-down
