  •  Too big to fail (0+ / 0-)

    Has anyone considered what would happen to the economy in general if walmart failed. They have destroyed local businesses everywhere. Where are all the poor schmucks who work there going to go? We have enabled walmart to become to big to fail. I believe it is a painful social correction that has to happen. If it does let's help the poor folks who have been exploited all these years.

      Not in retail.

      Seen a Woolworth's lately?  Used to be one of the biggest businesses around.

      Sears? Top of the heap. Barely holding on, now.

      I would love to see Walmart get replaced by a WinCo. Just went down to the new one that opened in Fort Worth. People walking around going "Look at all the bulk food you can buy! Candy, nuts, grains! Look at the meat prices!"

      There's a Walmart about six blocks away from this store. I think that WM will be gone in three years....or less.

      Please let WinCo come to the north side of FW. The one open now is just too far. But if it's only 20 miles away, a weekly trip there will be worth it.  Bye, bye Walmart!

      Freedom has two enemies: Those who want to control everyone around them...and those who feel no need to control themselves.

        Given the fact they are the largest employer in the U.S. and have destroyed so many businesses I believe it would be difficult for so many employees to find work. It was a monster we have created. I'm sure we will adapt.
