Walmart is the doorway of the legal takeover of America by China. Small town killer.

1) The General Store

No, the changes are inevitable. You can't stop progress. You can't change that fact.
Like say you only bought from small stores and paid more. And you helped those stores. Then say one day you just couldn't make ends meet. So you go into those stores and say "hey can you help me, give me some food and put it on a tab and I'll pay you when I can". they'll laugh in your face and show you the door in most cases. Unless your friends with the owner of the store. And even then he might help you once or twice but that's it. Personally I don't know the owner of any of the local smaller stores. All I know is I pay more there. So I think in most cases it's better to shop where you can get the best price.
Besides Wal mart gives people jobs in 3rd world countries. Your local store doesn't do anything, other than get rich off a monopoly they held in the community for many years on your dime.
No the choice is clear, the time for change is now, WAL MART IS HERE TO STAY AND I'D MUCH RATHER SHOP THERE.
