David Waggoner brought my attention to a SuperWallMart going up at the intersection of hwy 68 and business 68 near Paris. There is no sign announcing the invasion, but he said that at a recent hometown parade a group of children were seen walking with welcome signs for the new store. Not sure what this means for the WallMart already doing business about two miles down the road from this site.
