GP is: not in El Dorado or in Union County; 2) did not shut down. They laid off one division. And didn't Thermaflite JUST come in??? Weren't you bitching about them??? Atwoods??? TJ Maxx??? What's not a "good thing" is you piss-poor attitude filled with negativity. It's YOUR problem. Don't make it contageous.
I suspect the GP to which he was referring is the Koch Bro's. facility at the intersection of 167S. and Iron Mountain Road. It is as much in the city limits as Clean Harbors or Lion Refinery which was assigned its own Zip Code.

Here's the main rebuttal to all of you (or the one person using multiple names) to criticize the city. They didn't give at woods any money or other incentives to come here! So what's the problem???

I would bet the owners of atwoods never enters the city limits of Eldorado much less actually spends any money.
on the other hand the Eppinette family does a lot of shopping here, eating at local resturants, buying gasoline, clothes, groceries ect. While the owners of atwoods is enjoying a lavish lifestyle in Enid, Oklahoma.
So the answer then is for Eppinette to put a store in Enid, OK so all that money that Atwoods is sending to Enid would be coming back to El Dorado. I do agree with another coment someone made on here that El Dorado needs to build a river. A channel from the O wah chita would be ideal. If we do that then there would be alot easier access for the river cruise business that we need. Have a overnite dinner and theatre cruise to Monroe.

Because it's Eppinette complaining about a little competition. It's pathetic.

I have not seen nor heard of negative comments from Eppinette about atwood since very early on when it was first announced they had been lured here by the locals in the paper bragging about finally bagging atwoods, He did make some negative remarks on facebook for a day or so but soon cleaned it up, I could not much blame him as he had just made a major long term investment here in the same town selling practically the same products, PUT YOURSELF IN HIS SHOES, HOW WOULD YOU HAVE FELT ?

It looks to me like he is making wise decisions on ways to counter the bigger store, I personally think his new approach to customer service with the soon to open drive thru will be a big winner for him, it is not hard to see that price wise he is more than competitive with atwoods, Not sure that atwoods is use to facing the prices in most locations that Eppinette sells his goods for, He may not be happy about atwoods but I bet he will be ok, they seems to have very loyal following.

What's the city supposed to do? Leave eyesore buildings vacant? Say "sorry, atwoods, we already have enough stores "?

This whole thread is stupid. No business should expect to be protected from competition.

HEY DUMBASS! Are you too blind to see the temper tantrums he had on facebook and how he has pathetically continued them on here? Nobody cares about some stupid drive thru. It's not like they're selling prescriptions. Their prices aren't any better than atwoods, and the "loyal following" will appreciate the quality customer service when they try out atwoods. Plus, more local families will be supported with a good source of income from the jobs that atwoods will provide. A win for this community. Thank you, Atwoods! On behalf of all of El Dorado, we welcome you!

No, YOU really are a dumbass. Everyone knows that Atwoods is moving in with no taxpayer support. The way it should be. The city and county are two different entities, and neither made it "easy for Atwoods to get that building." Atwoods doesn't even own the building, dipshit.

So you can't name one thing the city or county did to help atwoods? That's right, you were lying about that just like you are about these prices.

Here are the real price differences:
40 LB bag of Naturals Lamb and Rice
Atwoods $24.99
Eppinettes $26.99
Good News Atwoods is coming!!!!

I did not post about the city/county love affair with atwoods, but I have checked these prices that I post and I know they are correct everyday prices, you on the other hand are fill of chit on your prices, Eppinette will beat atwoods 95 percent of the time on dog\pet\livestock everyday prices..throw up all the smoke and mirrors you want too, peeps will find out for themselves soon enough.......you only make yourself look like a fool by posting made up prices behind every truthful post I make........what a jerk you are.

Since Atwoods is opening Wed with hundred dollar giveaways i heard Eppinettes is countering with 200 dollar giveaways for the opening of the new drive through loading service! That's what you call stepping up and showing the community who appreciates you.

You DID post about the city/county love affair with atwoods, but you have not accurately checked these prices that you post and you KNOW they are not correct everyday prices. I, on the other hand, am not full of "chit" on my prices, Eppinette will not beat atwoods 95 percent of the time on dog\pet\livestock everyday prices..throw up all the smoke and mirrors you want too, peeps will find out for themselves soon enough.......you only make yourself look like a fool by posting made up prices, and I follow with their actual prices with every truthful post I make........what a jerk you are.

The funny thing is that you're actually making the argument that the City was right to bring in Atwoods. Competition is good for the consumer, and this is proven by the fact that Eppinettes is adding services and paying attention to their prices. When we have competition, the consumers win. When we have protectionisn, like you wish we had, only a single business owner wins.
