Thumbs down Super Wal-Mart

So, I heard a rumor yesterday that the City of Boone has passed a Super Wal-Mart coming into Boone. I heard they will be building a new store by Fareway and Ace Hardware. They better not put in another FREAKING MCDONALD's!!!!
Personally, I really don't think we need another/bigger Wal-Mart.
Plus, what does that mean for the old Wal-Mart? It will probably just sit vacant and have to be torn down eventually.

Wish we could get a Kohl's or a GOOD store. And some more eating establishments.

Welcome back, Mis5c3d.

I wonder what requirements Walmart has in order for a town to qualify for a Super Walmart. I'm suprised that Ames can maintain both a Walmart and a Super Walmart.

I don't know what the requirements are. I just know Boone lost both Pamida and Alco when Wal-Mart came in and I always thought that sucked. I enjoy going to Pamida in Perry now - I think they have an Alco too, but I always preferred Pamida.

WalMart is a virus. It only needs enough open space to build a box and a lot and it's good to go.

Once Walmart vacates their current building (after the new one is built) Theisen's wants to expand into Boone in that location.

The north store is just barely maintained. I go there to avoid the crowds but the service is terrible. I was going to get a gift of diamond earings (cheap ones $80) and waited at the jewelry counter for near 10 minutes. I final;ly just left the store and went to Penny's where I was served immediately but for $98. I did not buy the service policy.

I wouldn't mind a Thiesens, but they would probably hurt Orschelin.

Default Super Walmart

If you go the other towns that made the switch to a super Walmart the old stores were made into a Theisen's.
