: Why would Wal-Mart spend several million dollars to open a store in an area only to (1) Put everyone else out of business and (2) Close the store. This makes no sense at all.
There are "follow ons" to your process outlined above: (3) build an even bigger eye sore and abandon the old one. I have seen this happen in the 6 years that I have lived in North Fort Worth I have seen 1 Wal-mart abandoned and another be built just one block away. Now they are building an even bigger one in the adjacent lot!!! The "first" one is a true eye sore to the community. It was been many different stores in the past but most of the time it has been just abandon... based on our experience here is would say that step (4) is to repeat step (1)...
