Everytime I drive through downtown Ironwood I see one or more empty building and Wallyworld isn't even built yet. Besides its not like nobody drives to the one in Ashland right now. Don't get me wrong I don't like Wal-mart and I dont patron their stores. I prefer Target. But lets face it.. the area needs SOMETHING! If people are complaining they should have thought twice before they shot down the prison idea years back

That whole area sucks! They spend more money remolding the Gogebic county fair grounds than they do on remolding schools! I feel sorry for the poor kids that have to grow up in that area and never know what the real world is like. I don't think even Wally world will make it in Ironwood!
