The Pensacola News Journal tells the story of why residents
can no longer buy a copy of the local newspaper at Wal-Mart.
You can't buy the Pensacola News Journal at Wal-Mart
The store ordered us off their property, told us to come
pick up our newspaper racks and clear out.
So we did.
A few people called last week, some even wrote letters to
the editor, and wanted to know why they couldn't buy the
newspaper at Wal-Mart in the days after Hurricane Dennis.
Some managers at Wal-Mart didn't appreciate a column Mark
O'Brien wrote last month about the downside of the cheap prices
that Sam Walton's empire has brought to America. We all pay a
little less, and sometimes a lot less, at the grocery store and
department store because of Mr. Walton, the founder of Wal-Mart.
