Do you think the City Commission should approve plans for a Wal-Mart at Sixth Street and Wakarusa Drive?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on October 25, 2006
“No. The one we have is more than enough for Lawrence. I saw a lot of local businesses close in my hometown because of Wal-Mart. One of the things we like so much about Lawrence is all of the small, local businesses. I haven’t shopped at Wal-Mart once since I’ve been here.”
“Do we really need another Wal-Mart? I think this is a one-Wal-Mart town.”
“Absolutely not. I won’t even go into a Wal-Mart because of what they’ve done to rural America. They’ve shut down the downtowns of so many small towns. They’re predators.”
“No, because then there would be too many Wal-Marts here and there are too many Wal-Marts period.”
