Oh Glorious Day

There's now a Super Walmart within 40 mintues of my house (it's probably 30 tops). I'm amazed the local corrupt grocery unions and their coporate sponsors weren't able to put the kibosh on this store opening up in the Cleveland city proper. Guess it shows how desperate the City is for jobs and businesses to locate here.

They still have a ways to go before they compete with several smaller towns though. The backwater location in which I lived before had about a half dozen super stores within a half hour of it.

About 6,000 people applied for 350 jobs there. Robert Simons, a professor of urban planning and real estate in the Levin College of Urban Affairs at Cleveland State University, said that's a sign of a soft local economy. "That seems like a whole lot" of applicants, he said.
And of the 6000 who applied, probably only 200 were qualified to work there...
