7. They often do not
For example, I can buy the same picture frame, flower pot, phone cord, hammer and dozens of other things at the local Dollar Store for, well, a dollar that WalMart charges much more for (I've seen the same products in both places) and that other stores charge WAY more for. Retailers charge a) what they can get away with and b) what makes it worth their while to sell the product at (profit, loss-leader, good will, could be a lot of things). I'm waiting for the day the Chinese begin rolling out $500 cars.... because it will happen.
