Can't stand all that Wal-Hell stands for.

I know! Here in Hooterville, the grocery prices at the other stores are outrageous. We usually go in to Shawnee and go to the tribally owned grocery store. I hit the mom n pop hardware store here locally. It is a very old store in a very old bldg., reminds me of the 1950s.

That is why I would live on the outskirts of OKC or Tulsa. A person could still go in to the city and have all the amenities without all the riff raff living next door.

You know, they built a brand new wal mart in Wewoka, built on site and one year later, they closed it down. Now there is a brand new bldg. just sitting there with no beautiful people shopping there.

The ONLY reason I picked OKC is because all my family is on the western side of OK. I lived near Belle Isle and that was a nice area.
In Stillwater, they loved Wal-Mart so much, that they had to build another one. So two Wal-Marts now. People said it would drive the Perry Wal-Mart out of business, but it never happened. In nearby Cushing, Wal-Mart got replaced by a new and bigger one around 7 years ago. So Wal-Mart is well loved in this part of Oklahoma.

You can say that we are on the outskirts and aside from the usual small town quirks it is a nice place.

Walmart is an awful company and has awful stores. It's downright sad that people love it.
