I can't agree more! However my beef w/ Wally world is that they ruined a great wetland- filled it up, stuck in a big road and a shopping center right through it. (Not to mention the nearby housing they tore down) There was plenty of negative public opinion, it also was a protected area. But, they didn't care what people thought and petitioned for several years until they finally were awarded an exception. There were plenty of other places that they could have put it... plenty of nice already standing buildings, and spaces in commercial area that were plenty big. Why a walmart on a wetland? I think they saved a little money and "boosted" the local economy. They supposedly built another wetland somewhere... but we all know that it will not be as effective as a natural one. And the part of the wetland that is still there is right next to a road and gets runoff pollution and all the stuff people throw from cars.... you get the picture.

That was my walmart soap box.
