    People were genuinely glad to have the Walmart in Rolla.  Things were being sold that in that town that were not sold previously.  People used to drive from Rolla to Springfield or St. Louis to make some purchases which is around a 100 mile drive.  This was not considered out of the ordinary.

    I haven't been to Rolla in over 20 years but I'm guessing that Walmart still has the cheapest prices.  Perhaps your tale holds water somewhere but in Rolla, not too much.
