Letter: Town needs Walmart
To the person who thinks I am ignorant, and has all the answers, I want you to know I am a retired Marine, who took time out of my life to defend your right to have freedom of speech.
I see this case (the French King discount department store) moving to another court which to me is ridiculous because this developer should have this case go right to the Supreme Court, where there will be more than one judge. This has gone on long enough; this whole fiasco has turned into class warfare. Don’t pretend you care about the employees because you have over 100 jobs that you are preventing right here in Greenfield.
The town needs this store. There is nowhere for the people to shop, and as far as saying everything at Walmart is made in China, that’s a laugh, because the other day I was at Macy’s at the Holyoke mall, and my wife was talking to a lady who was going to buy a pair of jeans until she saw the price. She asked her to check to see where they were made and guess what: Made in China!
I don’t know why you are so ignorant of the fact that most of the people in Greenfield want a Walmart. The parking lot in all the Walmarts I go to are always full of cars. There are more reasons to have a Walmart than not to so have one, so get off your high horse and let the majority of people who want the store have it, and give the developer the OK finally!
