Wow! What wonderful news from T.V. Reed and his "Pullman Alliance for Responsible Development," raving about the new Pullman-Moscow Building Supply Store in Pullman. Strangely, this is news about something no one else seems to have heard about.Technorati Tags: wal-mart walmart
Reed tells of the spectacular service and quality of this locally owned business that will free us from the talons of evil Wal-Mart.
The trouble is Reed's whole account is nothing but fiction. It never happened. There is no new Pullman-Moscow Building Supply store on Bishop Boulevard next door to Wal-Mart, but Reed and his PARD group have spent years using the courts to block Wal-Mart and the very business he now raves about. The proposed PMBS store has an announced size of 140,000 square feet and actually sits closer to the cemetery than Wal-Mart. Moreover, the PMBS store is dependent upon the construction of Wal-Mart. Anyway, Reed tells us we can look forward to a wonderful PMBS store whenever his own legal stalling is finally ended by the courts.
Perhaps Reed has confused the recently opened Henry's Ace Hardware store with Pullman-Moscow Building Supply. Indeed, Ace Hardware is a wonderful addition to the Pullman business community. But there is a mega difference between a hardware retail business and a building supply firm and a Wal-Mart department store.
