I think a Wal-Mart would be good for the community.
I have a friend and his mom has to drive all the way to Steamboat for diapers. People in towns around us might come to Craig for the good prices. My mom and I went to the Kmart a few days ago; they only had a really small selection of toys, electronics and clothes. The competition would be good for the community.
I think a Wal-Mart would be good here. I have been to the Wal-Mart in Rifle and in Steamboat. They have the best sale prices.
I think having a Wal-Mart here would save on gas money, and people would be encouraged to shop locally.
I also think that the shops downtown won't go out of business because they have items you won't find in Wal-Mart. The positive move would be to build a Wal-Mart in Craig.
