What a sad life you must lead. All the excitement over some warehouse that destroys small towns. Walmart has really done wonderful things for this town. They give $400 all year long to a few charities and they blow it up to sound like they've bequeathed the town with a small fortune. The only fortunes went to Bentonville, Arkansas. And what has Bentonville done for us? As you can see I think of Walmart as a plague that must be killed off and disposed of before it spreads any further.

They donate thousands of dollars to the local schools (Russell county and Adair) each year... Much less the numerous charities that receive the matching $200 for carwashes and bakesales.... know the facts before you ramble on....

Well my husband works at walmart and the manager told him that there was a freeze on the super walmart because don franklin went up on the price of the land. so it is supposed to come but who knows. they just spent quite a bit of money to remodel the electronics department and i think if it was anywhere close that they would not have done that.

They remodeled the electronics dept. because they opened up the dept. All electronics are open now instead of being closed in. I agree columbia's wal-mart sucks. Never has anything your looking for and if they do, their out of it.

Good luck to you all and your silly Walmarts. They ruined the mom and pop shops in my area. Put them right out of business. And that SUCKS big time.

That may be but, we have alot of local mom and pop shops come into our store to buy all there soft drinks because its cheaper for them to buy from us (wal-mart) then it is for them to buy off the coke or pepsi truck. So you need to look at those local vendors before you point fingers.

Say NO to WalMart. They ruin little towns. Just look at what they did to Columbia. There used to be a downtown and it was all healthy and then that Walmart tried to take over and pay their workers minimum wage and say their doing all these good things for the town.
