comes to town they will sell thier items at a loss which can be absorbed by the other stores to drive out the mom and pop businesses. After the competition is gone the prices go back up.
They recieve tax deferments from the city for a set number of years.
The majority of thier goods are not made in America, If they were anything but a profit driven corperation they would be damanding that thier goods being sold would be produced in American factories by American workers.
The biggest negative is the money is pulled from the community going to Bentonville, Arkansas and not recycled thru other transactions within the community. If you care about you town or community local businesses then shop them instead of Wally World.
By all means fight to keep Wal-Mart out of your community. Yes they give better prices on some items but at what cost to your locals?
