Thread Name: BS: Bloody WalMart
Subject: RE: BS: Bloody WalMart
Either there's too many or not enough. We got Eagle Hardware which appeared to wipe out a truly excellent locally owned store, then I learned the locals were retiring and no one wanted to take over. Then Home Depot opened up right next to Eagle, then Eagle became Lowe's. Walmart and K-Mart opened up at the same time. I just figure at some time the market here will be over-retailed and a few of the big boxes will be turned into indoor rec centers.
I don't know how many good jobs we're losing versus poor jobs we're gaining, has anyone done hard research on the issue.
As far as shooting them all, except for doug's kid, sounds like a very palestinian approach. That's sure to work, now.
