cut rate cutthroats

How could I not have noticed when the fur was flying about Target banning the Salvation Army from collecting donations around Christmas, I mean, come on, they are religious based group helping the poor, the downtrodden and many in each of our communities. They wanted the bell ringers to go elsewhere, as though all those holiday shoppers would be offended by a bit of happy holiday tithing to help the less fortunate. Now it sadly comes to light, but is barely a big shock, that Target was one of the bigger supporters of the Republican party and last week's innauguration fiesta or was that fiasco.

Since we can't rush out and buy discounted items at Walmart and of course K Mart is a big no no, as is Costco, we may have to invent our own below market alternative shopping mecca and call it LivMart, where employees are treated fairly, given benefits, breaks, good work environment, child care, oh the list is endless. I'll start working on the name later today. You start the business plan.

OK, I'm working on the business plan for LivMart. With fair treatment and an endless list of employee benefits, and I presume no products manufactured by workers earning less than the U.S. minimum wage, is this new below market emporium expected to be (A) profitable, (B) not for profit and supported by an annual giving campaign, or (C) unprofitable and subsidized by the American taxpayer? Guidance, please.
