Walmart, the new town square

Interesting story on NPR about Walmart and all the weird and sometimes wonderful things that happen at the retail stores on a regular basis. Not surprising when you consider, as the story notes, that 140 million people, about half the population of America, visit a Walmart store each week.

An author contends in the report that Walmart, though it undoubtedly has erased Main Street retailers all across America, has created a new town square of a sort all its own.
