Wal-Mart isn't going to build anything in Salamanca, get it out of your head. They put their distribution centers out in the middle of nowhere because the taxes are lower. What the hell makes you think they would ever pay an indian lease? That is the main reason Salamanca is on a one way road to failure. Its not an incentive to even bother building anything close to the value of what walmart would have to build and thats why nobody except someone enrolled or the Nation itself will ever invest big money into or on that reservation.

I have to agree there has been a shake up at Parkview and not at all a good one! I have lived in Salamanca all my life and have seen Parkview got through many changes, But not one as bad as this. The new Manager should be put back in the meat dept where he came from, he would at least be doing more work than he is now. I always see him out in the parking lot cleaning when I go by. How can they consider themselves a "Hometown Store" when they are getting rid of our hometown people?If management thinks we shoppers and residents of Salamanca dont notice the changes and the price increases they better wake up before its to late! Bring back Tim Hedlund he was one of the best store managers Parkview had! He cared about his employees and the customers!

Parkview is getting almost as bad as Luminite at getting rid of long time loyal employees. Theres not much in this area so they take advantage.

The inventory is decreasing by the week...they don't carry many things that I use to by on a regular basis....If save a lot had rolls in bulk I would never go to Parkview...Wal-mart, BJs and Tops in Eville are getting most of my grocery business...too bad for our rapidly declining city...i can understand why the good young people don't want to stay here and Parkview is just one more thing...

The employees there all need some customer service training- these young girls they have at the registers are unbelievable. I went to cash out- and this one girl looked like I ruined her day just by going in her line. Like she had something better to do and I was wasing her time. I really felt like a burden to her. Seriously managment really needs to step up. And, while I am in line, I dont want to hear about these girls and the parties that they are going to afterwork. The legal drinking age is still 21, right??

Trash talk at the registers is nothing new and not the fault of the new manager. It has been going on there since I can remember and I've been going there for 40 years now! Aren't the people in this town happy about anything?

I agree that trash talking by cashiers is nothing new. However, just because it has been going on there for years doesn't make it o.k.
In my opinion it is getting more difficult to find much of anything to be happy about our town. Again, this is my opinion. However, I wouldn't be surprised if others felt the same way.

<quoted text>Why do you want to put these people who work in the Parkview out of work? I know there isn't much here that a Walmart could hurt but right now we should be happy with what we do have and not try to close it!!
you would not only be putting them out of work but out of their misery by bringing a wal mart in. nobody wants to be at parkview getting treated like garbage and watching the new management run the place into the ground. talk to the people there...ever come across one that likes their job? there are other jobs out there.

You guys are all nuts! If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen. I know that we are trying out best to get that "home-town, friendly" atmosphere back. As for the prices, we have no control; they are given to us by our owners. There is such a thing as competition (ever heard of it?) All these prior comments must be an ex-employee or one that's just not happy. Jobs are hard to find - so if you're that unhappy, get out!!! Or stay in the kitchen and bear the heat - IT WILL GET BETTER.

lol, yeah we've heard of competition...and they all have Parkview beat! I used to shop there but recently Parkview has been in the toilet just waitin for someone to flush. By reading the proir posts it's apparent that the employees aren't happy and with good reason. It obviosly shows if costumers are talking about it. You are apparently trying to get the "home-town, friendly" atmosphere back...for who? Do you forget that the employees are home-town people to? They are subject to poor working conditions, and the customers are being taken advantage of because they have the monopoly in the area on certain items. Tell your owners to stop being so greedy! Tell them customer service is what makes a store what it is and you can't have that with miserable employees.

It's odd that Reids' Food Barn and Park and Shop can have better sales than Parkview.....

I've heard of competition, and usually if you want to stay in business you LOWER not RAISE your prices.

Oh Wow!!!!$25.00. That's great!!!! Do you think the manager of 33 years that they ditched wouldn't have done the same????? With their prices you ain't going to get much for $25.00!!!
