Ahhhhh nonsense on all of you BA has a neighborhood market and 2 walmarts and a reasors, I just wish the people building it would think of poor Sapulpa where if you live on the east side of town you have to drive to the west side of town for any kind of grocery store! "Thats where a neighborhood mkt would go great"!

I'm thrilled.(sarcasm) The only reason glad to see Wally World N'hood market is because that will mean that Madalyn's Hallmark store should benefit as well as McAllisters and Rib Crib. If it were my decision there would be no minimum wage jobs. Talk about demoralizing people and stealing their self-esteem and self-worth. Frankly, I think you have to pass a "stupid test" to work at Wally World in most depts. I am sorry for the employees that can't get a better job. Good ol' Rodney Ray....wonder how much $$$ he got under the table for this store. Hummmmm. Such an upstanding kind of guy. NOT!!

Reasor's is a good grocery store if you can afford it...I haven't shopped at a Walmart since Thanksgiving 10 yrs ago when the checker walked off and left 20 of us standing in line and never came back...we had been shopping for 2 hours and standing in line for about 1 hour...they told us to move over to the other lines which were 20-30 carts deep...we left the stuff there and we went to Reasor's and bought stuff for Thanksgiving dinner<3<3<3...now since the economy is bad I shop at BigLots,Warehouse Market and Sav-a-lot...I have heard Aldi is great also but never been there...

Miss Tearious: You want to know the reason why the cashier walked? Remember how busy it was that day you were shopping? Remember how many cranky people there were there? That cashier has to deal with hundreds of people's problems! It is extremely stressful! Try being on the other side of the counter for once!

Boohoo...small businesses....oh no, another big box store is coming here to steal all of our ("high paying") jobs!! Boohoo.... If you are a small business, you should probably offer something a little more than prices. I'll give you a hint, its OUTSTANDING SERVICE! There are certain things that I will only shop small businesses for. There are other things that I will go to big box stores.

I'm glad someone brought up the other small businesses in the shopping center that the Neighborhood Market is going in. Big box stores do help the small businesses. Why must you complain? The results of Albertson's being there and not being there are completely obvious!

Ok, so let do the math here. How many local jobs are there to be displaced? Probably no where near the 100 that Wal-Mart is supplying. Let's think about tax revenue for the city. Oh wait, Wal-Mart wins again!

The moral to the story is shop where you like, and if you do so, it will probably still stay in business.

New jobs? Maybe. What about the folks who will lose their jobs because ANOTHER Wal-Mart forced other businesses to close or to have to lay off workers because sales are down?

You can always go to target and shop for food, might cost ya maybe 2 bucks more, but ya don't have to stand in line no 20-30 minutes.

Reasors is too high.. Not just too high, but WAY too high, their prices are close to what Albertsons was, and we saw where they went.

Reasors-"the right price" for who? Most of their Tulsa stores are clean. However, the one on 41st and Garnett is dirty, the deli sells half cooked chicken, and most of the employee have poor attitudes.

As for Wal-mart...Just like Tulsa's potholes, plenty to go around.

Josie, going from the east side of Sapulpa to the west side is no real feat. Besides, there is a Reasors and Warehouse Market.

I live in Owasso and it will be a cold day in hell before I go to any Walmart. They are supposedly building it out near the new reasors off of 116th(i may be wrong). Walmart can't stand to see another company making money. They have got to monopolize the market. If reasors goes out of buisness I will drive to Tulsa to buy my groceries.

You won't lose a Rreasor's over a neighborhood Market. The choices in Oklahoma are too few already, that'a one big reason prices are what they are. Alsonot slectively shopping helps add to the price also. Like the attitude of "oh well, nothing I can do"......

Maybe it is minimum wage and not so good benefits, but I wonder how many applicants they get that are just sitting at home now with nothing coming in. They've lost the jobs they've had (sometimes for many years) and have nothing to show for those years. Bet some of them will take anything that will put food on the table. Count your blessings if you still have your job.

Reasor's is not that much higher than Wally World discount trash. Reasor's has EXCELLENT choices in meat, best fresh veggies and fruit, absolutely the best service, employees who actually know where stuff is and can help you find whatever you need, employees dressed clean and neat, the list can go on and on. They are not too high cost at all. It depends on what you buy. The food is crap and old, etc. at Wally World. GO REASOR'S!!! Apparently you want something for nothing. You get whatyou pay for. Frankly, I am sick of grumpy old men and women who work at Wally World, can barely get around, and I do feel sorry for them that they have to keep working in that environment and get paid peanuts.

The answer is simple... stop shopping at these corporate grocers! If you'll notice, Wal-Mart's not even cheap anymore, because they are almost a monopoly. If you guys don't stop shopping there, 10 years from now we will have no choices but Wal-Mart, and their subsideraries. If you notice these days, 1/2 of the groceries Wal-Mart sells they produce! Read the labels, folks! Wal-Mart is the epitome of corporate greed, google it, and you'll see just who they really are.

Go to Reasor's... at least they carry all the best choice brand stuff. Wal Mart's always save is crap. People need to start opening small, local markets, of all types, and run these corporations out of business, and to hell where they belong. Wake Up, People!
