In support of the big box store

I am 29 years old, and I support my wife and our two young children on not very much money.

I am among the group of local citizens who want a big-box store to move into our community. I have always had a hard time finding affordable clothing locally for myself and now my children, as well. If we cannot find what we are looking for at Kmart or JCPenney, then we have to take our limited shopping dollars out of town.

I have lived in Grass Valley for 17 years. I love it here, but we need more budget-friendly choices.
