I am not a particular fan of Wal-Mart but they do help & serve the communities they are in,& surrounding ones too. If your group[church,boy/girl scouts,elders,sports team,needs stuff,you'll often get it free. My grand-son recently took part in a benefit fashion show,and Wal-Mart donated the clothes he wore, & had a sales associate in charge of facilitating the choosing of the clothes etc. They are really good neighbors,and sell good stuff cheap.I could barely afford my prescription inhalent before I started going to Sam's Club. Saves me about 60$ every 2 months on one,and the other is 9$ at Sam's was 38$ at C.V.S.I am sure that having a Wal-mart will not degrade the quality of life in Playa as much as some folks seem to think.
