Falcon is no longer the sleepy rural town it once was. Over the past five years, it has exploded on both the residential and commercial side. Some area residents are afraid that too much development will cause Falcon to lose that ìcertain somethingî or small-town atmosphere, but, on the other hand, they enjoy all the shopping conveniences. That was the consensus of those who answered this monthís Streetwise question: Are you anxiously awaiting the opening of the Falcon Wal-Mart, or will you choose to shop elsewhere?

Shane Dunnam, Peyton
ìYea, I donít like it (Wal-Mart), but itís significantly cheaper, and itís going to be closer than the other one (Wal-Mart located on the corner of Powers and Woodmen).î
Georgette Varga, Peyton
ìI have mixed emotions. In one way it will be nice because it is closer, especially with gas prices. And it will give competition to Safeway. But on the other hand, it will produce a lot more traffic. More people will probably come out here for that and because our property taxes are so low.î

Rhonda Smith, Falcon
ìItís inevitable that we (Falcon) are going to get bigger. I would rather support local/Falcon businesses. I think Wal-Mart will take away from that.”
Gwen Mai, Falcon
ìAs a business owner, Iím anxiously awaiting it. I think it will keep more business in the Falcon area. But I will remain faithful to Safeway for grocery shopping and for its customer service. I feel like they know me. But the convenience for other things will be nice.”
