Wal-Mart Free Zone

Don't even get me started...

BUT at least my decision to never buy from this corporate monster is an easy one to make: There are NO Wal-Marts in Atlanta. In fact I may be one of the few Americans who has to use "Store Finder" feature on Wal-Mart's web site. The closest one is 11 miles away in Morrow, then there's one in Marietta (12 miles) and Dunwoody (also 12 miles). The only way I personally could get to any of them is to rent a car (or take a bus trip or walk from Dunwoody MARTA station, which I would not do to go buy jumk and support a company that's just wrong).

I will save my Wal-Mart rant (which I may construct with help from Caleb) for another day, but this little geographic fact pleased me, even though I know the company is pushing on the perimeters of the city in places in Avondale. Yuck.
