Bring Walmart to Whitehall Township - Get competitive or get out!

Bring Walmart to Whitehall!!!

    1. Petition by

      John Andrews

      Muskegon, MI

America was founded on free enterprise, how can one man tell another where, how or why they can start a business.  The core of my belief is that no man can tell another man what to do in this country, as long as you are not infringing on another persons civil liberties. If Walmart has enough people willing to work for them, and enough people shopping at their stores to stay in business, who the hell are we to tell them they can't do it? This county was founded on people striving to better themselves, their families, and the ones they love.

To:
Bring Walmart to Whitehall Township - Get competitive or get out!
Bring Walmart to Whitehall!!!

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      I believe that this would be a good move for Whitehall. Small business would still survive, increase even when their specialty is spread further. Bring more jobs to an area that needs it year round, not just during the summer!

      It will bring 300 jobs to this area. In this area there are so many people unemployed. Some of these folks cant even afford gas to go to Muskegon to look for jobs. Businesses in this area maybe have to make their pricing more reasonable. Its give people jobs or watch people move from our community either way businesses are going to loose. Its a fact. One may take longer than the other but either way it will happen.

      The unemployment rate in our area is high and I have friends, family and neighbors who need a job. It will draw people from out lying areas such as new Era, Hart, Fruitland Township, and Dalton to Whitehall to do their shopping. Most people also visit our places when shopping. I normally go south to Muskegon because meijers is my main store. Then I go to Plumbs for their bakery and deli, have lunch at one of the area restraunts and go to a few thrift stores. Whitehall has everything but the big box and is closer. I truly believe that Walmart will benefit the community in the long run, as it will attract a lot of people like myself who normally shop the super center and stores around it.

      Good luck

      It is 1 stop shopping and better than driving 40 mins to the nearest Walmart. Also will create jobs

      I have to drive 40 minutes to get to a Walmart now. Would be great it I didn't have to plan a day out for it...I could run to Whitehall anytime !!
