Wow, I know there must have been something that slowed down the construction process besides the economy. What about the business that were to be built around that facility, are they still going ahead with those projects?

I understand the need for jobs, but WalMart, I do not shop their unless I really am in need, I prefer the home town stores, I shop Safeway here by me. I hope people continue to support their home town stores.

Safeway is very bit as big as walmart. The two store that are in the snowflake area is IGA and Bashas. Bashas is not that bad but very over priced. IGA I dislike. I end up going to Walmart in Show low and that is about 40 miles from where I live. I hope that they get working on it soon. This town needs it.

yes I do understand that the town needs it, but now here is the question is it going to be a super walmart? or like the old walmarts? like the one in Globe? For paper goods walmart is ok, but for meat products no way after what i saw and learned i will not buy my meat there. I prefer local, but will go to Cosco here in the valley, right now I live in Mesa, but will be up in that area soon.

I don't buy my meats at walmart there is a nice Safeway in Showlow and the Bashas is OK. I dislike the meat at the IGA. The plot plans says it is going to be a super walmart. There is still go to be a long time before it's up. they still have not passed the compaction test. If you are moving to this area I would plan to drive to showlow once a month at least. Showlow is 20 miles from the town of Snowflake.

I can't believe the amount of people that are still addicted to Walmart! Walmart does not treat their people right. Jobs! Minimum wage and minimum hours. Most employees qualify for and are encouraged to go on AHCCCS. Walmart is not a store that will save your community or your need for CHEAP goods. Safeway as bad as Walmart? Safeway pays good wages and benefits to employees. Educate yourselves people. Shop Costco and other local stores

Every one complains and says they hate Walmart but why is the store in Showlow so packed all the time than? Facts are that people will always go for the lowest prices no matter what they say. It is a matter of economics.

for economic reasons people need to shop at their home town stores, to keep the money in their town,I am guilty of wal-mart, but do not go there any more I shop safeway, cosco, I do allot better that way...
When I do move up there to our property I hope to be able to become self sufficient, and not depend on allot of stores...

It's hard to become self sufficient it is a little better if you live in town but if you are going to live outside town it takes about two years to become self sufficient. It's a bad time to move up here alot of people are losing their jobs.

I'm on med. leave with Walley world . Last I heard it would have a start date around 2010. Some thing about verifying land strata compaction because of being a past land fill area . sumething like that. Walley worlds is pretty hush hush about it. In other words there having problems? I originally came from casper wyo. in the hopes of starting in the Taylor Walmart when it opened. Since that time they've pushed the date back,back,back? will it ever get built? I don't know. I've heard from relitives in fayetville, arkansas that they might pull out. But that's hear-say.

well if they pull out I do hope the city will nail them for fees and such for breaking a contract, loss of revenue ect...ect...ect... But then maybe another store will move in something like a Buckel clothing store. or a nice mature modest clothing store that will bring people in from the surrounding area to buy..

snowflake and Taylor are slowing dying. in the three yrs. I have lived here I have seen many business come and go. If it wasn't for the fact that the local contractor mess up the compaction test. the biggest problem is that they have not got an outside contractor. they are trying from my understanding to change their contact with the city. so they can bring in an outside contractor.

so it is the good ole boys routine, well you have that anywhere... When we move up there we won't need to work except if we want, it is retirement time for us... I have never had the feeling of that town dying, and I have lived in a town where it was dying, so the town had to do something to get people to come home or move there to save it and they did..And I feel Snowflake will be around forever, so i am not worried about that... what I do worry about is undesirables, but that is everywhere.I was told where I own my land there is allot of crime, which I did not know till after I bought it..Golden Horse area. But if we get together as citizens and keep our eyes and ears open we can change that area to a better place to live.. I am just 3 miles off Conch highway...about 13 miles east of SnowFlake...

I live golden horse about 10 miles from town and five miles down a dirt road. I know about where you are going to live it's not so bad but don't believe in your neighbors. you are an outsider and they will act friendly but will stab you in the back.
