Yup, indeed. As much as I hate Wallmart this is a real cool thing.

Wallmart usually takes 3 months to adjudicate whether they want to carry a publication (more often than not, they don't). In this case, they decided within 24 hours and ordered 3300 copies of Concrete Wave immediatly!!

Congrats to Michael Brooke!! That is a major coup!

What a double-edged bit of news.

I hope that MB doesn't become dependent upon their money to the point where he'll take a severe hit when the Super Christers inevitably find something morally objectionable in the pages and decide that they must pull the plug on it in order to salvage the souls of the nation's children.

Bomb Wal-Mart.

I can assure you he won't. But this will get the mag out to more skaters who, hopefully, will subscribe.

Boy oh boy.

Good article. I read somewhere that Wal-Mart cost the state of CA something like $85 million because Wal-Mart pays sub-standard wages (so CA ends up subsidizing Wal-Mart).

Well aware of it, Monkey. That's why I mentioned "I hate Wallmart". Evil bastards with great taste in Skateboard mags.

All the hate in the world won't stop their strongarm if they set their minds to putting the hurt on you.

I'd rather have an intimate business relationship with the Mafia.

I've read this story before.. It'll be very interesting to see if they come back and want to get the mag even cheaper after the first month or so.

Outt..

But of course they will...it's a known procedure. However the money is so big, people ALWAYS give in- because it's better than none at all. Will quality/content be sacrificed? Sure as hell hope not. Oh and always remember to deliver on time! Chargebacks are a bitch.

Indeed. Personally, I refuse to shop there myself. I try to avoid all outragiously huge big box stores.
