Those of us living in this area have some inconvenience in needing to drive long distances for some goods and services. What goods and services do you most often need that you have to drive a long distance to get? Can you buy everything you need within less than 10 miles of your home?

Hmm. Maybe I could get rich if I open a merkin store?

The majority of people in Arab have developed the WalMartian mentality. They just love to flock there to load up on the Chinese stuff made by child and slave labor and then painted with poisonous and toxic paints and chemicals. They feel if WalMart doesn't have it,they don't need it. These stores in small towns control people's lives kind of like the tail wagging the dog. Sad times indeed.

Sorry ThomasA, but I had in mind a question more directed at people's needs, the things they will burn fuel to go get. It was not an anti-WalMart opening. That's a different issue, if it is an issue at all.

Do you need a merkin? They could probably be bought in China, too.
