Steve spoke to KCPQ Q13 Fox News and said, This is what I picked up here and it was wrapped in plastic. So I thought they were legit. But when the family went to a local Walmart store they were offered an upsetting resolution. Carmen Lopez (KCPQ) Carmen told the station, Wal-Mart had said they would only give us a refund, at least the store did which didnt sound right, because I just really want my headphones at this point. Because I was really looking forward to them. The refund actually wouldnt even cover the current cost of the headphones at Walmart, since they were discounted when originally purchased. The Lopezs reached out to the Walmart corporate office and are waiting to hear back.

Dollar General, Family Dollar Stores, and Dollar Tree Stores: Which One Should be in Your Portfolio?
McMath remains on life support at Children’s Hospital Oakland nearly a week after doctors declared her brain dead, she had tonsil surgery on Dec. 9 to help her with sleep apnea but began bleeding and experienced cardiac arrest later that night. Doctors declared her brain dead on Dec. 12. AP Douglas Straus, a lawyer for the hospital, said in a letter made public Friday that before the hospital would comply with the family’s request to move Jahi, it would need to speak directly with officials at any nursing home to make sure they understand her condition, “including the fact that Jahi is brain dead” – and to discuss needed preparations, including transportation. “Children’s Hospital will of course continue to do everything legally and ethically permissible to support the family of Jahi McMath. In that regard, Children’s will allow a lawful transfer of Jahi’s body in its current state to another location if the family can arrange such a transfer and Children’s can legally do so,” Straus wrote in the letter. He also said the Alameda County coroner needed to sign off on the move “since we are dealing with the body of a person who has been declared legally dead.” The letter was sent to Dolan after Dolan said he was preparing a federal civil rights lawsuit to force the hospital to outfit Jahi with breathing and feeding tubes.

However, based on store traffic trends, Family Dollar issued weak guidance for the upcoming quarter. Family Dollar expects earnings in the range of $0.65-$0.75 a share for the first quarter and it also expects comps to decline in the low-single digit range. Based on Family Dollar’s weak performance, analysts and commentators are speculating about the takeover of Family Dollar by its biggest rival, Dollar General. Dollar General is undergoing rapid expansion The merger of Dollar General and Family Dollar would, in fact, create the largest small-box retailer in the U.S. and also strategically position the combined company to offer good competition to Wal-Mart’smove of opening neighborhood stores. The scale of combined operations would also offer stiff competition to drugstores.
