    the same, but I can't. Like many in semi-rural America it's WalMart or nothing for many things. My friend and I do drive into SLC weekly when we can to shop at an employee owned store, WinCo. But, that is around 70 miles round trip.

    The "competition" for WalMart in my town has been driven out or is totally unaffordable. I wish I could say that I could justify spending much more money shopping at those two stores, but I can't. I do what I can, but I have to go to WalMart for many things, especially pet food.

    It pisses me off every time I walk in the door.

      But can you just not walk in the door on November 23?

        Too crazy for me. I was talking about groceries and whatever, notions? Stuff.
