Pity Eureka in the wake of WalMart
Tom Seabourn offers his own experiences to explain why the WalMart opening in 2012 in Eureka is a net-awful for the community. The damage will extend beyond competing retail businesses and shitty work environment for employees.
In my opinion, Walmart is the worst possible business that could have moved into a dead mall. It will become the mall and one day the mall will become the tax base to Eureka. When that happens even people in the TV, radio and newspaper business will mostly go out of business because these smaller business that will go away are what keep the local media alive. Walmart only buys one ad and they do it on National TV… radio not local.
