Wal Mart hurts Local Businesses
HUSA (Historic Uptown Susanville Association) may disband because it does not have any answers to the business that Wal Mart takes away from the uptown businesses. When Wal Mart came in to Susanville, it's first and only intent was to "eliminate" Mom and Pop businesses.
Not only the businesses in uptown Susanville are hurt by Wal Mart, but all small businesses have been devastated by Wal Mart's presence.
More and more communities are saying "NO" to Wal Mart's coming into their towns. Fight Back
Susanville has locally owned shoe stores, paint stores, book stores, tire stores, fabric and hobby stores, hardware stores pharmacy's, stationery stores, gift stores, furniture stores, auto parts, pet supplies, nursery's
