    My sister lives in Greenfield, Massachusetts.

    They have a wonderful Downtown area that is Full of
    Small, Locally Owned Businesses.

    Walmart fought the Locals for several years trying to
    Force their way into the Community. It didn't Work.

    The Folks in Greenfield decided that Keeping what they
    Already Had was a Lot more important than saving a
    few dollars at Walmart.

      I enjoy taking a drive and finding nice little downtowns, like Greenfield.  I then spend some money on dinner somewhere like the People's Pint.  Towns that have been strip mined by CostWalTarCo and ChiliAppleLobster?  I keep driving.
