53 percent of the U.S. population lives within five miles of a Wal-Mart
90 percent of the U.S. population lives within fifteen miles of a Wal-Mart
97 percent of the U.S. population lives within twenty-five miles of a Wal-Mart
Mardi Gras 1959 and you forgot to confirm the room reservations.
Used to be in the 90% and then they built a new one that is a 20 minute walk away.
Haha, nice! I bet that was an interesting time, pre-60s Mardi Gras.
And that's fair. I'm definitely in the 97%.
Sadly, I can vouch for Walmart placement. Before I moved to the wilds of New Mexico nine years ago, I never shopped there as I had choice. Now, not so much.
We live 20 miles from town, and there's one Walmart. And there's only one other place to shop for groceries, so Walmart get most of our business. Fortunately there's a third store opening in a few months and when they open, we stop giving Walmart money. Our grocery bill will go up, but it will be worth it on many fronts.
You know that groceries at Walmart aren't as nutritious as at the grocery store, right? They have special contracts with soup companies and such. It's all cheaper for a reason.
Wow. I must be in the 3 percent. There isn't a Walmart here for about 35 miles. Sweet!
