Maybe somebody should explain that 70% of the jobs in this country come from SMALL BUSINESSES !!!!

I don't see how Wally World has helped Chesterfield any except maybe to run KMart out.

Keep your county rustic.

I'll second that. It's not what Powhatan needs right now.

Powhatan Phamacy -- does anyone still shop there ? That is the only business that I can think of that might go out of business. They didn't seem to care when they moved down to Food Lion from their Flat Rock location. I would love to see Wal-Mart come to Powhatan hopefully followed by a Lowes. Powhatan County can use the revenue ..

Why not have a wallymart? I think it would be good. That way we go to that store instead of driving further to the new store over on 360.

Build the store.

They didn't move, they expanded. It's their 2nd store. Yes, people still shop there. There is nothing wrong with Walmart, Powhatan is simply not equipped to handle that kind of traffic right now, hands down. I was telling someone else in another forum, they have been clinging to their roots and rural character for so long that the current development doesn't allow for a big box store like Walmart. Not to mention, the millions it would take to make the roads accessible for this is far greater than the tax revenue they'd receive. It's just not good timing YET. There are a thousand different aspects that people don't seem to care to educate themselves on. it's not jsut a matter of sitting a store in the middle of a field; there are many more aspects the planning commission needs to work on first.

JUST BUILD IT! I can't help the fact that Powhatan's small businesses overcharge for every item. I can't help the fact that Powhatan Pharmacy @South Creek has rude personnel. This county takes a decade to make a decision. If you are concerned about beauty, tear down the ugly empty buildings in Flat Rock. Thank you for my 24hr Sheetz--best business in county!!!

Walmart should just tell Powhatan to forget it and go a couple of blocks up to Chesterfild county on 60 or go to Cumberland County on 60 I'm sure either county would be happy to have the revenue and jobs. We all know that all of Powhatan residences will still be shopping there so the local businesses will still lose. If the people here really felt that way about local businesses Flat Rock supermarket would still be here and Food Lion wouldn't and Sheetz wouldn't be here either. So Walmart don't waste your time on this county and the county supervisors. Then the County board can raise our taxes more.
