I have a confession. I love Wal-Mart. I love Target, too. But at heart I am a Wal-Mart girl.
When I moved to the big city, I was very sad that there was not a Wal-Mart convenient to me. So, I transitioned to being a full time Target girl. The prices weren't as good, though some of the finds were much better.
Then, I bought a house. Within 2 minutes of my house is a Wal-Mart. Granted, it is a bit ghetto. I don't get the great deals that are sometimes found a newer, bigger Wal-Marts. I often feel out of place in the store and get lots of stares when I go in after church on a Sunday morning!
But --- it is Wal-Mart. And it is so very close to my house. Easy for the mid-project run to get more potting soil - or gas for the lawn mower!
I found out last night that my beloved Wal-Mart is closing. Boo. I knew that they were building a new super center inside the loop not too far away. They had been advertising jobs for the past few months. BUT, I didn't know that they were going to close my Wal-Mart! So, now I don't have Wal-Mart as convenient any more. Nor is there a Target very close. I guess I'll just have to look at a map to see how far I have to drive to shop either place.
But on the bright side, maybe it'll save me money?
