S.K. Day: Stop Wal-Mart whining
I wish people would stop whining about the new Wal-Mart store coming to Craig.
I have lived here my whole life and have seen major stores come and go. This town needs a Wal-Mart for two reasons. One is Craig is too high in prices. Second, there are hundreds of people who cannot make the commute to Steamboat or Rifle or even Utah to go shopping at Wal-Mart.
If these businesses were really for the people, then their prices would be more affordable. I say this because we live on my husband’s disability, and I am a full-time student and a mother and grandmother.
Craig needs this Wal-Mart, if not for everyone, then the ones who cannot afford Craig prices. Do not stop the Wal-Mart. If anything, it will bring in more business to our town.
With an above-average snowpack following a snowy winter, local firefighters and wildlife experts are expecting a mild fire season this year, especially at higher elevations.
