Comments on: Noshiro in the NYT Tue, 15 May 2012 14:34:13 +0000 hourly 1 By: mom Thu, 06 Dec 2007 16:54:20 +0000 Thanks, Chris, for printing this. We were looking in the NYT we get, but from your story, this was probably printed last week. Davis is facing the same problems as Noshiro, but by choice. They don’t want any megastores in town, and have nixed the ones that have tried to locate here. We are supposed to get a Target, one that even promises to be green, but it hasn’t gone up yet, and citizens here keep complaining that it will bring the “wrong kind of people”, i.e. poor ones, into our Republic of Davis. There is a Wallmart now in Athens, Ohio, where my father is, but I think it is patronized heavily by people both in and out of the town.
