The Water Cooler – Wal-Mart or Target in Concord?

April 7, 2014 12:00 pm · 107 comments

The “Water Cooler” is a feature on where we ask you a question or provide a topic, and you talk about it!

The “Water Cooler” will be up Monday-Friday at noon!

Today’s question:

Currently, there are no plans to build Wal-Mart or a Target in the City of Concord, but if you had to choose one to move into the city, which would you choose?

Talk about it….

Can’t we come up with something better than Walmart, Target or K-Mart?

Didn’t work out well last time Walmart tried to come to Concord. Voted it down and ended up with Costco instead.

Very difficult to choose between
the two. Walmart carries White
Stag and Danskin, two women’s
brands I like. Their electronics
are the cheapest around. Target
is good for stuff like sheets and
housewares. I shop Target in the
WC and Walmart in Mtz, but the
one I wish was closer is Walmart.

Target. A Whole Foods would also be nice.

If you are into human rights abuse and child exploitation, then either store is a perfect candidate!

Both companies have terrible records when taking care of the labor that produces it’s goods. Walmart goes a step further by mistreating and exploiting the U.S. citizens it employes as well.

There are already “Whole Paychecks” in WC and Lafayette. What we need is a supermarket for those of us on a budget, and that has a consistent selection (unlike Cost Plus Bargain Market).
