Monthly Theme Day - The Color Blue

November's monthly theme is the color blue. I was actually having a really hard time coming up with something blue in Jefferson City, even trying to think outside the box. Then I drove down Missouri Blvd, which is the main drag here in Jeff City, and saw Wal-Mart, which is of course the main store in town. Not as bad as it once was, there is a Target now, but 15 years ago, Wal-mart was the only show in town. In fact Jefferson City was one of the first Super Centers in Missouri. Now the state is littered with them and Jefferson City is on it's way to getting it's second one.

It's a great photo. For me, however, the store is not so great. I'd rather see you picture than patronize it. Have a good day!

Interesting choice!

Somehow i thought of Walmart as being red. Now I know!

Walmart are known as Asda in the UK -- not bad but I tend to shop more at another one these days.

Here in the UK a report on supermarkets suggests that there is lack of competition among them and there should be more! That's not my understanding of the situation.

Greetings from American Fork, UT.

This photo should be on the World Daily Photo Blog (is there such a thing?) because it seems like Walmart is taking over the world.

Interesting photo choice for today. Thanks for sharing :)
