Why not put another Wal-Mart in SGF as well?
The same folks that grumble loudest about U.S. money going to "Fore-ners, Chinese, and such" will drive miles to shop at Wal-Mart. Gotta love it!

You are destroying all the beauty of your community, before you know it the only place to shop will be Walmart. Then it will be to late to bring back the places and people who have left the area.

1) The only beauty left in Queensbury is in the Adirondack Park.

2) Who is leaving the area? Queensbury continues to be one of the fastest growing towns in the region.

Why not put one in Granville. N.Y.
God knows they could use a good store to shop in.
The only one there is Price Chopper.I would love To see a Super Wall-Mart go in to Granville, N.Y.
Please think about it.

A great place for a Wal-mart would be along the Ft Edward flats (that's rt 197 for those who don't know) going towards Argyle. I just can't believe they want to place another one so close to the other and still this isn't any closer for those of us who live farther out in Washington County. Hopefully they won't be like Stewart's or a bank, and drop one on every corner. A Sam's Club would have been nice.

Wal Mart is cuttign new store opening 40% this year in the good old USA.

They are PUTTING more emphasis on opening stores in developing nations.

It may just be that economics and tight credit will prevent "LongIslandNorth" from getting their second Wally-world after all ...

Perhaps ALL non Queensbury residents should travel to Rutand, Saratoga or elsewhere to get the message across.

Queensbury has no Town property taxes because all the shoppers from the area that go to Queensbury are generous in their purchases and pay the taxes for the well-to-do Queensbury residents and developers.

Yeechh!

You are absolutely right. But, heck no-one wants any part of Washington County because of the welfare office being right there. Heck decent people can not even have nice things out because of all the stealing and vandalism...they need to put a youth center, skate park or something in the village to keep these young kids out of trouble.
