What’s your Wal-Mart ratio?

I live in Muncie, Indiana, a city of 70,000 and we have two Wal-Mart Supercenters. That makes our Wal-Mart ratio 35,000 to 1.

If you take into account Meijer and Target, our big-box-stores-of-cheap-stuff ratio stands at 17,500 to 1.

What are your ratios?

I got thinking about this yesterday after talking with my publicist at Wiley. She told me that there wasn’t a Wal-Mart in Brooklyn, NY. That’s a world I can’t imagine. Where do people in Brooklyn buy all of their cheap crap and toothpaste?

Kelsey says:

K-mart? Please, that place is so 1980’s. And I thought you New Yorkers were so hip.

Kent says:

Within the actual city of Toronto there is only one (way on the westend), and it’s not even a supercenter. So that’s makes the ratio about 1:2,000,000.

Once you get into the suburbs, expecially in the norther Greater Toronto Area the ratio drops to around Munice levels.

Wal-Mart ratio in Galveston, TX: 1:57,466.
