    What are they going to do with all the employees at the Walmart on Cox Creek? I’ve been told by a few reliable sources that that walmart will close when this one opens. Not that I care, all they do is pay piffly amounts to people. All that money they make goes to opening more stores so they can monopolize. I haven’t been in a Walmart in a long time, and won’t be going back. I try to support small home town businesses.
