That crazy Eppinette basher that keeps posting those price comparisons will find something to blame it on, like the skating rink opening back up.

Good point, anyone and everyone that had extra money to spend in the past month blew it on crap they really didn't need at the new atwoods store, no money left for a book at betty's..........the pie is still the same size.....the slices are getting thinner..........hurry C OF C and recuit more stores.

Because Enid, OK has a company HQ like Murphy Oil, etc.? Everybody I talk to is just flocking to the hills and growing lifestyles in ENID, OK! Should be getting their own conference center soon! If the local broke down feed stores here were such local favorites, then they would have satellite stores in ENID, OK. You know, since everyone is moving there.

And just think where Enid, OK would be without Atwoods! This just disproves your point (which you have yet to state a clear one).

More people come in from out of town to spend money at Atwoods in Enid than come into El Dorado from out of town to spend money at Murphy Oil. We need businesses that will draw people from out of town to spend money and keep our own money in town.

You're the one that's been concerning yourself with Enid, OK, dumbass. I agree to keep your money at home. And that's what you do when you buy at Atwoods, Henleys, Eppinettes, etc. Just don't buy online. Ok, we get your point.

GEE WHEEZ !!!!!!!! how many dollars do you think are spent at all those murphy spur u.s.a stations ??? where does that money come home to ? Eldorado..........the dollars at atwoods goes home to Enid ok..........come on, this is not complicated, sure they pay a few low wage employees, then 95% of your money leaves here on a fast train out of state.
Oh well

I have yet to spend one dollar at atwoods and I refuse to, just like home depot I choose KENS, just like office depot I choose ELDO PRINTING, I say no to walgreens and go to MELVINS......it only makes sense..... why should I not support local trade ? these locals are just as cheap if not cheaper.

It is a good thing, dumbass. It helps employee 20+ local families. Buy local, shop at Atwoods.

And you're entitled to that. However, you prove how little you know about microeconomics when you say that shopping at Home Depot, Office Depot, and Wal Greens is not shopping locally when they are located right here in El Dorado and employ local residents. Just shut up. You've lost this debate over and over to many different people.

Do you leave town to buy your gas at Murphy USA? None of the Murphy USA stations are in El Dorado. People who would come into El Dorado to shop if we had the stores would spend money at other places that would directly benefit our local economy. They have to eat, buy gas, pay taxes, maybe stay overnight. if no new money is coming into town, what there is is continually recycled and tends to flow over time to certain individuals. You would see a great difference if people from Monroe or Shreveport were coming here to shop instead of the other way around.
