We have officially become a redneck town. And we no longer have to go to Anchorage to get to the big city.
We have a Walmart. Ugh!
Being the loyal person I am, this is causing me a struggle. My step-mom has worked for a local grocery store for over 20 years. One of my closest friends here in town owns a small-town grocery store that has been around longer than I have lived here. So I've made the decision not to purchase my groceries at the Walmart. It will save me a bit of time (it is 2 minutes from my house) and money on other things. I won't have to travel to the Fred Meyer in Soldotna for household items and the like.
Interestingly enough, my step-mom also works for Frito Lay and she had to help them out at the Grand opening yesterday. Cali, who's been waiting for this day for a l-o-n-g time had great fun with the many characters wondering around the store. Well, that and she got to buy a TOY! Bigger Ugghh!
The worst part about Walmart moving in is that my girls feel they can ride their bikes a mile down the road and shop whenever they want to. Biggest Uggghhh!
Would you be excited?
