Hi, all!

I'm married to a West Virginia lady from Upshur County, grew up in Buckhannon, lived her adult years in Clarksburg, and one thing she often misses is shopping at a Wal-Mart Supercenter.

We live in Massachusetts, 20 miles south of Boston, and we only got 3 Supercenters in all of the state! Thanks to car problems, we're reluctant to drive to the nearest one just 12 miles south of us, and the other two are 20 miles and over 100 miles away from us.

So, if you got plenty of Supercenters in your part of WV, consider yourselves lucky! All we got is Sav-A-Lot for inexpensive groceries
(Also, something's wrong when New Orleans with its extremely high poverty has a Supercenter and my city doesn't)

As for Target, nearest location is 5 miles east of our city Brockton, which has 93,000 residents and high unemployment.. and, yes, lots of poverty. We need Target, too, even though their prices are higher than Wal-Mart's.

I have and never will work for domino's. Thank you very much.

Walmart/Chinamart is run by the Chinese military. Chinamart now controls 23% of America's retail sales.

What? What does that mean?

Last time I ever bothered to look at Wal-Mart's ownership via one of my fund prospectus' the lions share was still controlled by members of the Walton family, followed by institutional investors like Barclays and such..

Go into any retail establishment. Made in China. Can you find more than one item in walmart made in the U.S.A? How much longer can the American public afford $30 dvd players to support the Chinese government when all that they get in return are U.S. notes which are basically notes of debt?

I've never thought about it that way. All of the newer Target stores are designed this way, and some older ones too. Maybe it's too free up room towards the center of the store for more merchandise? Good question Janipoo. -mmccul

Sleepy's Matress is now open at The Commons! I drove past it on my way to Dick's Sporting Goods, it occupies C-1 and I believe C-2 as well. -mmccul

Wow that was quick, I didn't know they started the interior work on Sleepy's. Ledo's needs their contractors.
