Our store jumped to super size about 18 years ago. Of course, business after business closed down because they couldn't compete. We all came to rely on Wal Mart as a modern day general store. Now, after extensive remodeling, the inventory is cut by 20-30%. We're all scrambling to find necessities and Christmas presents elsewhere. In the long run, I'm sure it'll be better for our small town(pop.17,000). New businesses will open to fill the gap. Has this happened anywhere else?
