Your as cute as Unbridled Spirit. A petition won't be the reason a retail store opens in Harlan KY. They do a cost analysis, population studies, medium income, and a host of other things. Cost analysis will show that it will cost more to ship products. The populations is decreasing, along with the medium income.

Median dammit, median income.!!!
Median income is the amount that divides the income distribution into two equal groups, half having income above that amount, and half having income below that amount. Mean income (average) is the amount obtained by dividing the total aggregate income of a group by the number of units in that group.

No such thing as medium income here. Their is high, and low with little in between.

They wouldn't dare move into a town where Walmart dominates.

I don't see why they wouldn't come here, and trust me, I'm as smart as I am cute. I've done my research, I know how a petition works. Not to mention, I wouldn't put this much effort out there if I didn't. It's not like I'm posting a picture on my facebook and saying "for every share/like this photo gets, a hospital cures cancer!". I have hope that this county can be turned around and jobs as well as people can be brought back. I would think that anyone in this county would support a possible job opportunity considering the unemployment rates. If you don't have hope for our county then why would you live here? We have to step up and reach out to these companies to achieve anything, because right now, places like us are nothing but another dot on the map. I for one don't want my town to turn into a ghost town full of only tourists. I think that showing all of the support of an actual idea to the company may at least open up their minds to check into a potential business opportunity. Let's face it, money is money and big companies get it wherever they can. But support whatever beliefs you have, these are mine. If you don't want to help out, then don't. Plenty of others are helping out.

It's good to see a young person trying. How about contacting the Fiscal Court so that they can contact said company and offer a favorable package for opening one in this location.

It'll be okay till they see what kind of rent they want out there at the mall... Thirty times more than anywhere else...

Not only the rent but they own all the property up and down the bypass. I think Tractor Supply purchased the last piece of land they don't own.

LOL Maybe Ross can handle the rental rates at the mall.. Who knows! All I know is we need something in those two vacant buildings and that would be perfect. Not to mention we need more job opportunities.

I'm not arguing with you... I'll stand behind you till your chest caves in, then lead you when you run... I'm just playing devils advocate...
