Resources on WalMart: The Big Company Store

Barbara Ehrenreich's NICKLED AND DIMED.

 "story gallery" at the LA Times on WalMart. It's a nice set of investigative articles available at
I hope that the Times decided to leave it on-line for a while! (You do need to register, but there's no charge involved.) research produced these titles:
**Hometown Advantage : How to Defend Your Main Street Against Chain Stores and Why it Matters*, by Stacy Mitchell <>, Inst for Local Self Reliance; (February 2000*), ISBN:* 0917582896

*Slam-Dunking Wal-Mart*, by Al Norman, <> Raphel Marketing; (July 15, 1999)* ISBN:*

*How Wal-Mart is Destroying America and The World and What You Can Do About It*, by Bill Quinn <>, Ten Speed Press; (December 2000)* ISBN: *1580082319

The Norman book, which is in part about a successful campaign to block WalMart expansion into a small community, seems to be the strongest.
