I guess you missed the part where I said I don't shop at Walmart. Have I ever gone in and bought something from them? Yes. So what? Who hasn't? It's a store, are you that much of an elitist?

Btw, I have no children so no you're not and I don't live in the 1604/Potranco area which is why I hardly if ever post in this thread.
Enough said.

Wow. I'm glad my children aren't taught by people who judge others based on where they shop.

Ok, hold on now... I'm not a big Walmart fan these days but some of us live on a budget and it just makes sense to do the one stop shopping. Does that make me pond scum? I thought teachers of alll people were open minded. Where you shop does not make a differance as to the type of person you are.

I think my point is being missed. Or maybe it is not what do I know. I could care less where anyone shops and for what reason they shop there. I do not like what WalMart stands for and how they operate their corporation. To me, personally, WalMart has nothing original about it. Initially that was my point. This area of town seems to lack orginiality. If you choose to shop there what do I care??? I choose to not shop there which is my choice just as it is your choice to shop there. Locally owned bookstores was a suggestion, amongst many other types of businesses, that could open up in this area to give it a non-strip center type of feel. That is my point. Sidenote-I teach in a Title 0ne campus so $$$$ means nothing to me.

One would think we could use a good mom & pop used book store over in this area but the rent is to high for mom or pop.

Honestly I would love a used book store nearby. I'd probably be in there twice a week. But a previous poster made a very valid point, that places like that just don't do as well anymore due to ebooks and places like amazon and eBay.

I thought the Wal Mart comments were a bit snotty, but whatever.

Yeah, I am pretty snotty over here on my teacher's salary. You are entitled to your opinion though. If you like shopping at certain places good for you. I have done my homework on every place I shop and do not shop. If you choose certain corporations to spend your money at that it is your choice. Just like it is my choice to have an opinion on this area slowly losing its' cache and becoming like everywhere else in San Antonio.

So have I. I've come to the conclusion that it's better to reduce my carbon footprint by shopping close to my house rather than driving all over town trying to find a small, locally owned store to buy my toilet paper.

My point was that just because someone shops at Walmart doesn't mean they are uneducated, unethical or boring. I support my local economy when I can, but unfortunately those places don't do well, especially when everyone is trying to save a buck.

This thread is veering off topic now, I just don't see the point in criticizing others for where they chose to shop.

I think it would be great to have more independently owned stores and restaurants in this area. Considering the fact that this is the 'burbs and everyone talks about how dumpy this area is, I don't really see that happening.

And what is that? I want to hear what generalization you're going to throw on hundred of thousands of people.
