The two cities in question were both the birthplaces of stores that grew into chains that defined and transformed the American retail landscape.

Utica, N.Y., was where Frank W. Woolworth opened his first 5- and 10-cent store in 1859. By offering goods for sale at a uniform low price, Woolworth grew into the country's first mass merchandiser.

Sam Walton opened a 5- and 10-cent store in downtown Bentonville, Ark., in the 1950s. When he noted the rise of big-box discount department stores, he began opening them in small rural communities where the major chains were reluctant to locate. His Wal-Mart stores (the corporate name retains the hyphen even though the stores have dropped it) grew into the dominant force in American retail from the 1980s onward.

(The inheritors of Woolworth's model are the "dollar stores" you find in cities and towns all over, in particular Dollar Tree, which hews to that one-price-for-everything model.)

I've already delivered my opinion on the two cities in question, so I'll leave it to someone else to answer:

Philadelphia, Pa., or Chicago, Ill.?
Chicago because it is a better city.

Nashville, TN or Louisville, KY?

Nashville. A little larger. I really like Nashville. Both are good, but prefer Nashville overall.

Wilmington, NC or Galveston, TX?

Wilmington. Better weather and location (in my opinion). I also have contacts there.

Cleveland, TN or Fort Payne, AL?

Both places are pretty small, but Cleveland since it is larger with more amenities. Fort Payne does have very scenic surroundings however.

Madison, WI or Boulder, CO?

Boulder. Better weather and close to a major city. Yakima WA or Flagstaff AZ?

St. Louis. Even with the hollowing-out of its north side, still in better shape overall than Detroit, IMO.

Charlottesville, Va., or Ann Arbor, Mich.?

Can't go wrong with either location, but I choose Ann Arbor off the strength of its proximity to the Detroit metro with access to a much larger assortment of amenities.

Cheyenne, WY or St. George, UT?
