With no Walmart, Texas town has no grocery store – Videos – CBS News

Walmart has closed 154 stores in 27 states, resulting in over 10,000 employee layoffs. Many of the stores that closed were the only source of groceries in the areas they served. David Begnaud is in Whitewright, Texas, where residents now have to drive 22 miles for groceries.

When Walmart moved into these communities they led to the closure of stores that existed for years before. Pretty crummy if you ask me.

  1. I see what you’re saying. Walmart has forced small local businesses out of business and then swiftly closed their own. They just didn’t care.

    Ah the beauty of living in a big city. Won’t happen here, Walmart or no Walmart. We have supermarkets.
