Question Description

Ban on Big Retail in Small Towns

Supportive Arguments

  1. The first is that big retail stores tend to be located nearby in a community and pedestrian oriented where local can easily access to the independent store without driving miles away from their homes
  2. Big retails store also create economic diversity and stability. Because they are depending on the local community, these stores are firmly rooted in the community
  3. Big retail store strengthen community through their contributions to civic and cultural life. Donations are raised for many local nonprofits organizations to help community.

Negating Arguments

  1. Even if chain stores do save us a few dollars now and again, it comes at a great cost. Chain stores contribute far less to the local economy than independent businesses.
  2. Big retails chain store hurts the locally independent businesses. Many locally owned independent stores shut their doors due to the drops in sales.
  3. When big retail stores locate in farmland, wetlands, or green space, they eliminate natural resources and open space. Include acres of parking and occupy a large footprint.
