I remember when WalMart first moved into Talent. Small mom and pop businesses shut down within a few years. A few places remain, but they had to dance hard to stay in business and compete with the giant. The Ace Hardware store comes to mind. Where else can you buy a hammer and a bottle of booze? They had to open up a liquor store in order to stay open.
Now old "family values" Wally is pulling up stakes and moving out. How many people will lose their jobs? What will become of this sleepy little town now that the biggest employer is moving?
I hate WalMart! I hate everything it stands for.
American values, family values? I hope not.
