How does creating more jobs in our area negatively affect our economy? It's bringing much needed jobs to a severely disadvantaged area. Even when you buy American, you're buying foreign! Find me everything you need to live on a daily basis that does not have parts made overseas. It's impossible and implausible, it's not the 50's anymore, we have a global economy now. Thinking like yours is exactly what has been keeping the soo down. We need more in this town to attract more residents, tourists, and college students. If we have nothing to offer them, people will not come here and spend their money which boosts our local economy. Student enrollment at LSSU has been on a downslide for years, there's nothing for students to do here! Now with the borders harder to cross it makes it less exciting to be in a border town and cross to shop and sightsee. We need more state side. I say WalMart is a good thing, we need more big names to come here!

Hi,
Just wondering whether Sault Michigan's downtown recovered from the opening of the Walmart or if there's still a lot of boarded-up storefronts? I was through a number of times in the early/mid 90's and it always struck me what potential there is in the city
TIA

Nothing good can come of this. Traditionally, stores like these attract an unsavory element...Mexicans, welfare cases, drug addicts, etc.
