Walmart has become a controversial place to shop - people question their employment practices. They got bumped out of a third store in Winston Salem recently. But for a small town like Mt Airy, Walmart is essential. I can buy my husband's outsized overalls and gourmet coffee under the same roof. I get my dogfood, sewing needs, household supplies, medicines - and usually it's 20% cheaper than the smaller stores and worth the drive (8 miles from my house). Hey, love it or hate it, chances are you'll shop there. Huge, well arranged, helpful staff. It's our favorite mall.
