    in the past 2 years.  And that was for a cable wire.  The next closest store selling one was Radio shack about an hour away.

    With that being said, i have traveled to walmart on many occasions, to walk around, touch up their fruit, turn on their electronics, use their bathroom, and clean out my car in their trashcans.

    Sure they got my $5 for the cable wire, but they've spent a lot more on me :)

    95% of all life forms that once existed on earth are now extinct. It is only a matter of time until the Republicans follow suit.

      Now there's one grocery store. The chain has nearly a dozen outlets in town, but one stays open 24 hours.

      We used to have three different grocery chains here, all of whom had at least one 24-hour-store.  But that was before we ever heard of Wal-Mart.

      (Furr's Supermarket ran one of the first 24-hour-supermarkets I ever saw. They carried buffalo meat, too. You could go in at 4 am and get a quart of oil for the car or a bottle of cough syrup for the croupy kid, or a lawn chair or a set of dishes.
       We don't have their stores within 50 miles anymore.
       We used to have four Albertsons' stores here, and at least one was a 24-hour-store. None remain.
      For awhile we had The Box, and one of their stores was a 24-hour concern, a block from the campus of Texas Tech University. Now they're gone too.)

      All these stores left our area after Wal-Mart showed up.
