I hate Wal-Mart. Wal-Mart has killed off the old main streets of many small towns in America. What once had thriving main streets filled with businesses and Mom and Pop stores are now deserted and have become ghost towns because of Wal-Mart. Wal-Mart moves in and wipes out all stores large and small in a 50 mile radius.
And young people don't even know what a mom and pop store is. They look puzzled and say, "What's a mom and pop store?"
Here is one report and his view of this.

And below is another article on this subject.

Below is a link to the locations of 11 Wal-Marts near Kirbyville Texas.
Now take a look at what Main Street in Kirbyville looks like now as of 1996.
