Mr Ward, Great article. You're 1st fear is very real and worries me too. The big stores currently around town (MGM, Haskell's, France 44, Surdyk's) might be able to weather the Total storm. But, the small guys & munis will have it pretty tough. Total is very determined and serious about their business. They are also not afraid to seek the court room to get what they want. I am glad you are aware of what is looming on the horizon. Hopefully, city councils around the metro will not allow these out of state monsters into their communities. Keep up the great work!

Thanks for the kind words! I have heard a lot about their bevy of lawyers, and also about them steering people to their house brands when they are "out" of an advertised specials. John Ewoldt might be covering somoe of that ground in a big story he's doing on Total for Business or 1A what might run this weekend.
