Store Wars: When Walmart Comes to Town

Logo for Store Wars:  When Walmart Comes to Town
This website from PBS was designed to support a film that appeared regarding how Walmart entered the town of Ashland, Virginia and how the townspeople fought against it. There are links to other articles as well as the ability to purchase the film. However, the information here could lead to a lively class discussion. The site also has 3 extensive lesson plans for instructors to cover the material.
