I didn't have a very good opinion of Walmart either. I had to go to the East York Walmart last weekend for something I couldn't find at Target where I usually shop. I was really surprised to see the new layout and how clean and organized the place was.

If that be the case, Chad should secure a PERMANENT ROOM at WalMart!

Kudos to Chad...I was just "hair-assin'" you and that was a great comeback. I find it rewarding to laugh at myself at times as well. Carry on!

Goodness, the Big Boys have finally realized where the cultural contact points between Harrisburg/West Shore and Northern Suburban York fall. One could have imagined a burgeoning economic center there decades ago, except for one thing: no one who lives there has any money.
I suppose we can expect to see a plethora of "modern suburban" (ie 1980's tract housing) soon follow to actually support this trash.
But man, what if it can't? Any bets as to York Water being intested in expanding a line north on the tax payers' dime?
Oh, baby! Let's watch the fun begin!

Some folks like "Semi" are quite happy to live in an alley in York, PA, and purchase their weekly groceries at the local LATINO corner store. We "burbers" appreciate Wal-Mart, their foreign goods (nothing made in USA anymore/anyway) and especially their non-union foreign worker prices. Wal-Mart/York Water closely monitor conditions for the possibly of success in a particular area, but what if it can't. Putting my money on those two companies, rather than a scum-alley dwelling resident. The PROGRESS has already begun. Kudos to Wal-Mart!

New traffic patterns, football fields worth of dirt, expanding to double lane highways, a new water tower...

I think they should go whole hog- why not add a couple of beautiful wind turbines and some attractive solar panels- can't be too GREEN!

The scenic commute to Harrisburg will definitely be improved!

they took away a nice little campground...nobody shops in Etters except for a real necessity...if Walmart is thinking this will be another Shrewsbury bedroom community, this have missed it BIG on this one!

"except for one thing: no one who lives there has any money."

I guess you haven't looked around lately.....there are some high end developments in Etters and definitely some money. Which is why the area certainly does NOT need a low end store to bring in the low class shoppers. Most of us moved to the area to have a nice surburban home away from the shopping centers. Harrisburg and York are both 10 minutes away for shopping....if we needed to be closer, we would have moved closer! We chose to live in a nice area without the big box stores - Wal-Mart will ruin the area! Having money and being from Etters, I refuse to shop in a Wal-Mart! YUK!

What kind of math do you use? 600,000 yards of dirt is 6,000 football fields???? Crappy reporting.

Why would anyone shop at this dirty, disgusting so called store? Everyone should boycot Walmart! Worse thing that ever happened to this world, and people are dumb enough to keep giving them money.

N.I.M.B.Y. crowd! You know YOU will be the first one in the door to nose. Will you be reading the IN/OUT signs in English or Spanish? I heard "Mom from Etters" was the first greeter hired by THE Mart. "Wipe your frickin' feet before entering, a-holes". She will be an asset.

Those of us who hate Wal-mart to begin with will NOT be 'the first in the door'!!!! I'll boycot it in my back yard even more than before. J&W has everything we need and is a wonderful, helpful mom & pop shop and groceries are only 5 more minutes up the road. AND don't even get me started on the English/Spanish signs that don't belong in our "melting pot" where English is the spoken language!

Oh, come on! Dover ain't no suburb, it is still pretty much in the back country, except for Route 74 that brings in the mail wagon now and again. AND, I'll have you know, we hose out our alley at least twice a year.

Damn, you're right! I forgot about that new batch of "double-wides" they set up down in the holler not too long ago.

What's amusing is that you are probably from York - talk about no money. Those of us in the developments in Etters are not originally from the area in the first place and rarely mention we are in York County - too embarassing. Sorry.....no double wides near our $300K+ neighborhood!
