Received this link a couple of days ago at work.

Thought it was interesting and wanted to pass it on. There is definitely a Wal-Mart within 7 minutes of my house, with a Target right across the street. Talk about options. But…mine is not the super 24/7 wal-mart. oh well.

Plant a seed and watch it grow….

    Ha! That’s great. Here’s a funny story. Back when I was in high school, K-Mart decided to build their first superstore. One that would be bigger than any other store on the planet. They needed the perfect town to build it in. They searched and they searched. Finally, they settled on Port Huron, Michigan, my town. So built the biggest K-Mart in the world and called it Super K-Mart. At the ribbon cutting ceremony, dozens upon dozens of excited shoppers showed up. The CEO of K-Mart was there himself. He made a glorious speech about how this was the biggest K-Mart in the world and it would always be. That people deserved to get whatever they needed at anytime, day or night, all at just one place. Thus Super K-Mart. And they picked Port Huron, he said, because “Port Huron is a K-Mart kind of town.”

    When I read that in the paper the next morning, I told my mom that needed to move. She just laughed and served me some more link sausages. I love link sausages with my waffles.

    It’s interesting to compare that Walmart map with this map.

    hilarious. i remember when i had never heard of wal-mart, it was all k-mart. now it seems k-marts are ceasing to exist. they do pale in comparison, though. i, too, would not want to live in a ‘k-mart kind of town.’

    the comparison b/w the two maps is interesting. i thought it was also interesting to see where the first wal-marts started, where the “most demand was.” oh southern middle america.
