As Sam Poulten used to say: I have a quizzical question...aren't many
Wal-Marts in malls with other stores that (incredible as it sounds)
sell stuff the the ubiquitous predatory retailer doesn't?  Does W*M
actually OWN the land on which these boxes sit?  Thus if a fire
or robbery happened at a carpet store next to W*M, then what?
BTW their outlet in Methuen is a rare non-big-box operation;
it took over the space vacated by Caldor and is surrounded by
other stores and The Loop.
