    There are any number of Publix employees in the area that have been with the company since their first Okaloosa/Walton store opened in 2000. Given that there were times since then that the unemployment rate was less than 3% and wages could be surprisingly high for retail work during some of those years, I tend to regard it as an indicator that Publix was a preferred employer even when there were a lot of other retail employment options out there.

    Of course not, I already said earlier "many businesses". My point is that as a customer, I'm not going makeemployee welfare my primary concern. It's not my jurisdiction and it's an impossible task, though it gives some people the illusion that they are doing the right thing when they target certain particular businesses.

    Retail giant Wal-Mart has announced in recent weeks that, effective immediately, it is cutting as many as 13,000 of what it somehow has the audacity to refer to as "jobs" from its corporate payroll.

    According to Wal-Mart representatives, the, for lack of a better word, positions will be cut from the company's underperforming Sam's Club division. Analysts reported that Monday's layoffs marked one of the largest so-called downsizings of what can hardly even be termed employment in the company's history.

    According to the report, this will be the second Walmart in PCB and the other one will remain open. This one is supposed to be about 2/3 the size of the other one.

    in fla you get screwed with bogo at publix.in ga you only have to buy 1 item and its 1/2 off. in fla you must buy both items to get the bogo. but many things in bogo kill walmart. such as a-1 steak sause, lean quisine family sized bogo,35 oz box for $3 each,many of the cereals at bogo.many of the home cleaning products are bogo. my favorite store is costco hands down but none near sowa

    This sounds good to me. Smallmart is not worth the time IMO. In fact, if I need to go to Walmart I go ahead and drive to Destin (about once or twice a year).

    Dollar General is VERY nice. Small, organized, quick, great prices on most everything. I especially love the DG brand stuff (Clover Valley??).
