Re: “Arkley's Word

Wow....Thanks. I didn't now all that about the Pierson's. I'm beginning to wonder if all these "Anti HD people are just either employees, or "shills" for the Pierson family. Why not the outcry against THEM?

Re: “Arkley's Word

I am very blue collar. I haven't held a white collar job in my life. And I am very impressed what Home Depot does when they come to town. First of all, they'll clean out all the toxics out of the balloon tract, and they'll put in a wetlands to go along with the store. (Just like Target did when they came to town. Secondly, once again, they will provide TAX INCOME to the city, not only from locals, but outsiders who will come HERE to shop, instead of going to Redding, Crescent City, Ukiah, etc... And those people will spend their money at other businesses as well. This tax income will provide revenue to fix our parks, our infrastructure, etc so Eureka won't be as run down as it is now.
As for Home Depot being a bad neighbor, how come they sponsor athetes all the way up to the OLYMPIC level so they'll have the money to compete? Not only that, but a friend of mine who lives in downtown Sacramento, has a kid, who now has a brand spanking new playground to play in. Who was a big part of the building of the playground? Home Depot. Doesn't sound like a bad neighbor to me. Don't believe me? Check this out.... Home Depot takes part in the communities in which they are located.
http://www.kcra.com/video/23627485/index.html As for "needing another place to spend our money", that argument is just specious. If Eureka didn't have Winco, we'd have to pay "Safeway Prices", and Safeway doesn't NEARLY have the selection that Winco Does. Secondly, try to do a major renovation strictly with material from Pierson's. You'll pay a lot more of "YOUR" money. I say again, that my brother remodeled his WHOLE house. He shopped at Person's for what he could reasonably locally.... The rest? Home Depot in Crescent City or Redding, and including gas costs, STILL paid less than if he would have done the whole remodel from Pierson's.
