I would like to comment on Wal-Mart coming to Kenai. I think it would be wonderful to have a store like that again. Since Kmart left, we have not had a place to shop, except to drive all the way to Soldotna.
I live in Nikiski, and it's 22 miles to go over there one way. Gas being as high as it is, we have to watch our trips we are seniors.
I don't think it will affect other businesses. When Kmart was here, most of the businesses stayed. We all supported them when we could, as I do our M&M Market in Nikiski. I want them to know we are glad to have a place to shop out here.
