Hey, face it Wal-Mart is what Wal-Mart is. We are poor people in this area and we need retailers like Wal-Mart to help stretch our dollar. The People who don't want Wal-Mart likely have well paying jobs dependable autos ect and can afford to travel or shop at our current high priced stores here in Lancaster. I live from paycheck to paycheck and can rarely afford to buy even "cheap trinkets" from Wal-Mart. I work at ICT Group I can't afford to shop yard sales! We need more employers/jobs in this one horse town! Thanks for listening. Peace Out

Wal-Mart is not a force of nature. It is a corporation that is in the business of making money. In the past decade Wal-Mart has proven that it could care less about the well-being of American Manufacturers. By selling things at such a low price point they drive US companies to Mexico or overseas.
This recently happened in Bedford PA with a company called Hedstrom. They made Trampolines and Skate Ramps for Wal-Mart. The irony is that all the lower class workers in that town shop at Wal-Mart for the low prices. Those low prices drove Hedstrom out of buisness and the company folded.
Oh, and if you think Wal-Mart is a good thing for your community because they bring in jobs then wake up! Low wages, part time, no benefits; sound like a quality employer?
And I admit, Target is no better. Both stores sell good mostly made in CHINA! You think you're a patriot? If you really loved America you'd cough up another buck for your case of diet soda or you beer cooler for your motor home. Or here's an even better idea: Buy Less! Do you really need it?
Wal-Mart it for suckers.
