WalMart is not in The DC area at all until you go out about 50 miles. I like that a lot. But DC isn't evn close to where you are thinking of

Someone has to stop Walmart they take nice little towns and turn them into growing, prospering towns but the problem ihave with these towns growing is that if you ask most of the people in these towns they didnt want them to move in.
The town committees made the decision to destroy the town but what do they care Sam Walton just gives them a little money to say "yes".
Sorry if i got off on a rant but Walmart destroys life in small towns, its kind of like the Germans when they were trying to occupy Europe,walmart must be stopped.
If there is anyone that can give me an idea as to their favorite small town under 10000 people in either utah, montana,idaho or colorado.WE need to get our 2 kids out before they get hurt, kidnapped or raped in this crappy town.
Sorry im so angry but i use to be happy but it is hard to stay happy when you cant walk out the door without hearing the ghetto bird or police sirens.
I need my country life back ,it was a mistake to take my redneck butt and try to live here where i am required to speak a foreign language to get a good job.This city sucks.PLease give me ideas, i need out.
Good luck finding a town that does not have a Walmart.

Thank you bigreez thats what im looking for.How are prices of rentals and housing.What are some of the towns or cities that would be booming.My wife doesnt want to be in or near Denver, i use to drive truck to Denver and i dont want to raise the kids there either.We like the country life and dont mind driving 30 miles to work.I drive 30 miles to work here and it takes me 45 minutes in the morning and 1-2 hours at night and that is all freeway from work to home.

There is no Walmart in the Portland, OR area close-in to downtown. I believe to find a Walmart you'll have to travel several miles to an outlying suburb - I'm guessing they exist out in Gresham or Beaverton. I avoid the suburbs and live/work close-in, and haven't seen a Walmart in three years. It's nice - almost like it just doesn't exist in my little world.

Very recently, as in the past couple of weeks, Walmart was again turned down by neighborhood protests and city planners in a suburb east of Portland - they finally gave up and will start looking elsewhere for land to raze, I'm sure.

People, the answer to the demise of Walmart is very simple: DO NOT SHOP THERE. Period.
