It is enormous, too big for me.
Another huge grocery store will be build right in fron of me, just have to cross the road.
The competition will be great.

Joke! If Wal-Mart's prizes keep dropping all the time, how come we are still paying?

countrygirl62: Walmart in Canada huh


Didn't Canada kick a walmart out not long ago? Because they don't like Unions and are quite forcefull about keeping them out.

Yes this was in the East somewhere, in Ontario.
About a five-six day drive from B.C

I worked at the vision center at a local Walmart years ago when it had just opened. They actually DID use rollerblades to get around then! I guess they stopped it for insurance reasons.

I love Wal-Mart. Before I'd heard of them, and we got them here, I used to think how wonderful it would be if you could buy groceries and clothing in the same store. However, my dream store didn't have long lines at the check-out, laugh

Good question...yes, why are we still paying if they're prices keep rolling back?

What really happened here is that Wal-Mart just shut the doors of that store. Closed her down.

I got the idea of the rollerblades as I have seen them used by the staff in a large hardware store.

My town is exploding like crazy. We have a new bridge between two towns and now all the big boys have arrived.
I can hardly recognize my little town.

3 new strip malls too.

The problem is with 3 new strip malls it will be very difficult for these busineses to stay afloat. It is the little guy who will be paying the price.


Well my home will be worth more as all is in walking distance for me.

Ha ha happy birthday to me.
I am 65 dollars richer.
I had two cards in a drawer did not even know what they were for.
It said on the card that they could be re-loaded.

Decided to day to check them out and was told 65 moulah.
That was a very nice surprise!
