Wow. This is really disappointing. I don't like Walmart. Guess me and my tax dollars will keep driving to Gurnee.

If any store backed out, I'd have expected it to be Lowe's. That's the one that I don't think will have enough support. Actually, I'd expect Lowe's to thrive and Menards to go under.

If anyone even noticed most Lowe's, Home Depot, and Menards stores are right by each other. They don't go out of business. As far as the Wal-Mart in Antioch, it sucks. The people who work there are complete assholes. The people at the doors are a pothetic excuse to be called "greeters". New Wal-Marts like Crystal Lake and Woodstock are great. And Target sucks. Everything is way overpriced, and its unfair that they do everything that walmart does (except have low prices and carry less stuff and are always out of stock) and Wal-Mart is still the bad guy.

As I smoke my cigarette and drive peacefully to my nearby Target(in Lake Geneva)I realize how happy I am to be out of Anti-crotch after 10 long years. The best thing about Antioch is the post office workers, they rock. For the most part everyone else acts like you are a bother to serve. i.e. banks,stores,cops,restaurants, etc.

You think the Walmart in Antioch is bad, you should go to the one in Round Lake. I can't even go there at night without worrying about my life. The greeter is usually nice though.

Well well well Residunce, you just keep jumping around don't you? Do you know what the difference between being taken seriously and looking really stupid is? It's about one eighth of an inch. That's the exact didtance between your little pinky and the Caps Lock key. Try using it sometimes dunce. How's the whole village board thing working out for you Bob?
