Great to see the letter from Jill Hockema regarding tourism and Wal-Mart. I have to wonder if the tourists buy any jewelry from any of the stores in the downtown area?? Hmm, maybe not or we wouldn't see the "Blow Out Sale" notices on jewelry store fronts.

Also, for all the naysayers before Wal-Mart was built, I wonder if any of them are now regular shoppers there???
