Dear Editor, In two years, I am happy to say that I have only patronized the Walton empire once. That was only because I desperately needed motor oil for my car. I can live without Wal-Mart and so can anyone else. But it is obvious that Wal-Mart is welcome. If people wanted to put Wal-Mart out of business, they could do so right now. Wal-Mart is in business because many people choose to buy products there. Wal-Mart started out as a single store and got bigger because they gave customers what they wanted. No dominance lasts forever. In the 1930s, A&P had about 16,000 stores nationwide. Today they have about 400. Wal-Mart will lose out if customers do decide that they prefer something else. And the wants and needs of customers are always changing.
