The San Diego, California City Council voted late Tuesday, November 29, 2006, to ban certain giant retail stores, dealing a blow to Wal-Mart Stores Inc.’s potential to expand in the nation’s eighth-largest city.
In related news, WakeUpWalMart.com released the first ad in its “Hope For The Holidays” campaign. Watch it, then go holiday shopping in Croton, (Yellow Pages) rather than “elsewhere.”
I’m disappointed that the link you provided doesn’t include the hottest new shop in Croton, Groovy on Grand. Groovy on Grand has the absolute coolest clothes for kids, young and old. It’s located next door to the Shoe Repair across the street form Holy Name of Mary church.
Hooray that big chain stores get denied, they are the ruination of the “mom and pop” shops.
I heard an interesting fact recently. For every dollar spent in a corporate owned chain store approx. 10-15% of that dollar gets back to the local community……for every dollar spent in an independently owned store approx. 40-50% of the dollar gets back to the local community…..easy decision…..shop local….
Thank you for another great revelation. Croton should pass any anti-national corporation laws it can except in terms of banks and maybe dealerships. People should shop at the local businesses which treat their workers better and make better products.
