|Opening ceremonies at one of three Wal-Mart Grand Openings Wednesday in Corpus Christi, Tx.|
Not one, not two, but three, tres, trois, 3, III "Wal-Marrs" were all opened in Corpus Christi, Texas in one day. It all happened a couple of days ago on Wednesday. Although the Gateway City announced the opening of it's 4th Wal-Mart on North Loop 20 a few months ago, I don't think construction has started yet. To be honest, if it has, I haven't noticed.
When I read about the Grand Opening of 3 Wal-Marts on the same day, in the same town and not even in a metropolis like Los Angeles or Chicago or New York City but in a mid-sized town like Corpus Christi, Texas instead had me looking at the calendar to make sure it wasn't April Fools' Day.
OK, so for now, we'll let McAllen go on a diet for a while and it will be Corpus Christi eating Laredo's lunch for a change. They are definitely the Wal-Mart Capitol of South Texas.
