Wal-Mart has done a lot of good in the United States, even if you only consider its role in providing low-cost goods to ordinary Americans.

Wal-Mart has hurt alot of communities. They have shut down numerous mom and pop operations all over the U.S. Corporate greed at it's finest.

If you do not like Wal-mart, do not shop there.

Here, where I live, the nearest Wal-mart is well over 20 miles out of my town.

Factor in the cost of gasoline, wear and tear on your mode of transportation and how much time you spend
on the road traveling (hourly wage) may change your mind about buying at, traveling to Wal-mart. Plus the
quality of the goods at Wal-mart may make you consider that shopping locally is a better way to do business. And save money.

Cannot remember the last time I was in a Wal-mart. I do remember that being in the store made me ill.

Ty, Nancy.
