Wal-Mart issue could be revisited

I agree another Walmart will be just one step closer to anytown USA. First it doesnt "fit" in that part of town. What will another Walmart do for Lawrence? Help kill downtown...help further low wage jobs. It will make Lawrence more like other towns with multiple Walmarts such as Topeka. People should remember that Lawrence is unique and that certain things make it unique. Being unique means that you dont have the sameness that every other town has. Walmart is generic...you want a generic town then get a bunch of big box stores and a bunch of chain resturants then see how special your town is. It wont be.

Wal-Mart could revive lawsuit

What do we need another Walmart for? So we can be like Topeka? Maybe we should build a huge mall and put in a bunch of crappy chain resturants too. Lets kill off downtown while were at it. Being different than the typical generic town is what make Lawrence a good place to be.

Wal-Mart getting its day in court

If you want to destroy your downtown ..then get another Walmart....if you want a multibillion dollar company to sell you cheap stuff you probably don't need then get a Walmart. If you want to buy stuff from a company that pays their personnel the lowest wage with bad benefits ...then get a Walmart. If you want to cater to the lowest denominator of society ...then get a Walmart. If you want to be just like the majority of other citys with malls...crappy shopping...homogeneous chain stores...then get a Walmart or move to Topeka they have three. People here in Lawerence need to wake up and realize what makes Lawrence different....and the difference is what makes Lawrence a desirable place to live. Getting another Walmart doesnt do that.
