    Someone i know just received notice in the mail of the above - meeting will be held, and those who want to can protest. don't know if anyone on sowal has mentioned this or not. heard earlier a Target is coming, as well. Knew the sowal Walmart would just be the beginning.

    Is Dollar General one of those stores full of crap for a $1?

    Apparently they've been taking a lot of business from Walmart.

    No - I am not vehemently opposed to it like Walmart, just don't shop there.

    SoWal we have outgrown our britches! I just had to say that. The corporate world has realized how many people with extensive pocketbooks love our little corner of the world and they are setting in to try to get their share of the vacationers money. I'm sorry but I don't want to live in Destin and I don't know of anyone that lives in the SoWal area that does. So why are we turning into East Destin...or maybe we are West PCB?

    It's gotta be a Real Estate agent.... The land owner surely didn't have anything to do with it. We do this stuff while they are sleeping!

    Good to see you around Shelly. I heard it's a great time to buy!

    Funny, last weekend traveling through Alabama we'd see Dollar General stores in the middle of NOWHERE! I like DG and my sister swears they have quite a bit of 'made in USA' stuff. No, everything is not $1. It's just cheaper than the grocery stores. They have a little bit of everything.

    Near the ATL and in SoWal as often as possible
    Unfortunately SoWal becoming East Destin was inevitable. If zoning allows for big boxes, then property owners have the right to build them.

    Driving down 98 and only seeing pine trees and small businesses was nice while it lasted.

    The thought of these changes coming to SoWal makes me :puke:

    Some inconsistency here. Capitalism and a free market system work well for the affluent. However, some want it regulated when it comes to others as it is deemed aesthetically unpleasing or inconvenient to them.

    Not judging, just an observation. Natural selection applies to stores and businesses. If you want the business to fail, don't go there. Cast your vote. :banned:or :welcome:


    Many other factors being over looked here. SHELLY pointed out 1 that garnered glazed over expressions, no doubt. lol
