Well, to be fair, I think a consumer has already "lost" if he has to rely on a big box store employee on advice as to what to purchase.

I think asking the assistance of most minimum-wage employees at big box stores will generally lead to disaster. While there are exceptions to the rule, they're mostly that - just exceptions.
