Why Kmart Is In Financial Trouble

Nothing worse than a Summer cold, and I've picked up a cough and cold at the tail end of June. That's meant buying cough-and-cold medicine.

On Saturday at Kmart, a box of 20 caplets of Sudafed severe cough-and-cold medicine cost me $6.79.

Today at Walmart, I bought the Equate generics. (Kmart's generics won't cure anything.) 24 caplets for $2.34.

Update: today (July 1) I went back to Walmart, where I priced an identical package of Sudafed. The package that cost me $6.79 at Kmart was $4.97 at Walmart
