Don't think they have any actual Walmarts in the city of Dallas. There's one in Farmer's Branch and one in Garland, not sure about anywhere else. Anyhow, I'm very anti-Walmart. They drove a lot of neat little shops in south central Louisiana, North Texas, and central Colorado out of business, and are doing the same thing across the nation. They use union busting tactics to make sure unions do not form (Jacksonville, TX
). In Bunkie, LA
(I think that's the name of the town; it's somewhere between Alexandria and Lafayette on I-49), they opened up a store, drove the smaller businesses out, then closed the store, forcing people to drive quite a distance to buy their products and ruining the town financially.
Alan Jackson probably sums it up best in his song, "Little Man."
He pumped your gas and he cleaned your glass
One cold rainy night he fixed your flat
The new store came where you do it yourself
You buy Lotto tickets and food off the shelf
Forget the little man
Forget about that little man.
He hung on there for a few more years
Couldn't sell slurpees, wouldn't sell beer
Now the bank rents the station to a man down the road
And they sell Velvet Elvis and second hand clothes
There goes the little man,
There goes another little man.
Now the court square is just a set of streets
People go around but they hardly think
About the little man that built this town
Before the big money shut him down
There goes the little man.
Now the stores are lined up in a concrete strip
You can buy the whole world in just one trip
Save a penny because it's jumbo sized
They don't even realize
They're killing the little man.
Long live the little man, god bless the little man.
