Have you heard of the Walmart Effect. This has killed of small towns all over America. And for this reason I do not like them.
What are your thoughts on this,

I've seen it happen in several small Texas towns, although several have successfully fought Walmart and kept it out of their town. I don't know how common that is, but it's made a difference. Another small town here does have a Walmart, but they forced it to be located way on the outskirts of town, away from their main business/commercial district, to lessen the impact. I imagine it still had a chilling effect on the "native"/local businesses, even with it on the outskirts of town, since the town can be traversed by car in less than 20 minutes.
