This is sort of craft-related, but it's also a bit creepy.

They just opened a Wal-Mart in my area...we're probably one of the last places that never had one, up until now.

That's not the creepy part. The creepy part is that every surrounding store that I visited today, was next to empty, on a Saturday.

Went to Jo-Ann Fabrics...I'm not generally crafty, don't know how to sew or knit, but I needed to get some E6000 to try out. There was a handful of people there...and that Jo-Ann Fabrics was usually very busy.

Went to Target (needing some socks) and that was similarly quiet. Usually I spend my time there maneuvering my shopping cart around all the other carts...not this time. Again, the relative handful of shoppers.

The entire strip mall outside where the Wal-Mart was, was almost deserted...Circuit City, Ross Dress for Less, etc. Places usually mobbed on the weekend.

Out of morbid curiosity, I decided to drive by that new Wal-Mart. Sure enough, the place was packed; you could see even from the parking lot.

I'm not going to launch into an anti Wal-Mart diatribe. It's just true what they say. If a Wal-Mart opens anywhere, everything around it dies. Or at least I hope it doesn't die in this case. I hope this weirdness is only because of the Wal-Mart grand opening.
