Do your homework folks. Most the land around West Plains is owned by the Hoovers and they think that new business will pay the prices they want for their land. Guess again idiots. Plus, the area does not support the businesses that we want just because the population is not there. Its just spread out too far to towns around West Plains.

You folks are depriving a village of their idiots.

Lowes says they delayed plans due to the economy. Not the city of WP, the Chamber, or anything else.

As soon as you find a franchisee willing to put out the bucks to come to West Plains, they will be here.

Are all places in Missouri that Papa Johns would like to see stores (according to their web site) but they are not going to put one in any of those places, rather the FRANCHISEE has to do it. Do any of you truly understand how a business operates?

So come on stupor dave, what EXACTLY has the Planning and Zoning people done that is stifling business's from coming to WP?

I West Plains employers would wake up and pay people better, we would have a better economy. All these tightwads want to pay is minimum wage and give 25 hours. People need to quit going to work for peanuts. Let the owners do their jobs for a while!

Ok, I did a check on the properties that Hoovers have for sale in the area. 10 acres listed at 1.5 million. 24 acres in Willow Springs (the old KOA) 1.2 million. Now I had to recognize these properties on the different sites that Hoovers advertise through. I do also agree that I ve heard there already was a land deal but whether it be from the Hoovers or the city, it fell through. This is very misfortunate. As for people only paying 7.25 hr and only getting 20hrs a week well, go out and get a G E D. I have no college and I make 9.00 hr and I get 40 a week working as a temp through Penmac. Its not no big paying job but its a site better than 7.25 and all I did was go in and tell em I wanted a job that had been listed.
