We the community, not. My husgand and I have lived in Hood River for 32 years. We both want the new Wal-Mart. It's the only place in town our family can shop for undergarments and etc. Downtown shops are too expensive, and do not provide items needed for two young boys. I would rather take my money to Portland or The Dalles, if we lost Wal-Mart. That's what we did before Wal-Mart came to Hood River. The excuse about having too many box buildings is just than, an excuse. Everywhere I look there's a box building.
So please, do not include my husband and I when you say "We the community" because or opinion has not been asked for. My husband and I want the new Wal-Mart.
