Closing - Walmart Neighborhood Market

West Hartford, Connecticut USA

As you may know, Walmart is closing a number of their stores. "The Neighborhood Market in West Hartford was the only Connecticut location on the closing list. It opened in Bishops Corner in February 2013, becoming Wal-Mart's first Neighborhood Market in the Northeast." Hartford Courant

Depressing. At least, one of the check-out people told us that, Walmart has arranged for transfers to its other Connecticut stores for any of the employees who want them.

Looks like a Russian store in the USSR era. Nice photo-journalistic shot. V

Excellent B&W exposure by very sad and hard to believe. The empty shelves and the lack of shoppers tells a gloomy story. Vote.

Gosh, it's usually the smaller family owned who are forced out by the big much for convenience, Frank.
I like the look of isolated darkness. V

Excellent journalistic image Frank! When Walmart closes stores, you know the economy is bad, bad, bad.... V

Very good documentary image with the lone shopper, bare shelves and sparse sign. Nice perspective and tones. "V"
