  • This is just but one story I know of, but I know that the story was the same everywhere that I have lived where there was a Wal-Mart

      Wal- Mart stores (and now supercenters) have a large variety of items on there stores. They hire the handicapped- who have trouble getting jobs. And It is the cheapets on the yarn I use for my crocheting. That is the end of the list of good things I can think of.

      Having lived in a few small towns that Wal-Mart has moved, I have seen first hand the trouble that has come with the superstore. Laurel, MS: At first Laurel’s downtown was a busy area, all of the shops were open, This is where the courthouse and the


      library are( the library was actually shown on national news during a story about the Judge Pickering that Bush was trying to get into the supreme court). Then Wal-Mart moved in on the other side of town.

      They had the lowest prices. Soon, stores were closing down because they could not afford to compete with Wal-Mart. Downtown became a ghost town.

      All that remained was the library, post office, courthouse, a little rental store, and a Christian bookstore. Jobs became scarce. Then Wal-Mart hiked up their prices.

      A new area of town was thriving, the street where Wal-Mart was(sorry I ...


      • cannot remember the name of that street, but I can tell you that it was shown on Worlds Wildest Police Videos once). Eventually, the New Wal-Mart decided to become the Supercenter. They lowered their prices again.

        They made a new building down the road from the old one. And in no time, the area where the old Wal-Mart was almost deserted, K-Mart closed,any store that could afford to move into the new shopping cnter that Wal-Mart built did, and those who couldn’t were left in a new ghost town. And Wal-Mart once again hiked up their prices.

        Do

        you see a pattern emerging here?

        Jobs became even more scarce. The only job I could find before I moved away was at a chicken processing plant-which I couldn’t even take because I didn’t speak Spanish and couldn’t communicate with the other workers!But that is a rant for another time. This is just but one story I know of, but I know that the story was the same everywhere that I have lived where there was a Wal-Mart.

        The children of Sam Walton need to remember that Wal-Mart was once a small buisiness too. This gets a rating of 3 out of 10 and only tha thigh because of the fact that they hire the handicapped.
