In my town, Walmart is the fourth largest employer, and of the three,

blocks away seems to be doing just fine.  A Music store is doing well.  
other Groceries are apparently doing OK.  We just had a shake-up of

We have lost a couple hardware stores, but now we have big Ace 
hardware/lumber in town.

is doing quite well, thank you.  No blister packs and no scanners.

We're doing OK with Walmart.
