What are Big Box stores?



  1. 0 Votes

         “Big box stores” is the name people use to describe national retail chains that build extremely large, free-standing stores and usually sell a wide variety of products. Wal-Mart, Home Depot, Target, and Best Buy are considered big box stores. 

         Critics of these stores say they drive out small, local businesses and are hostile to unions. Another problem is that the buildings are hard to reuse once the retailer moves out. They are too big for most uses and many have deed restrictions that prevent other retailers from moving in. In some communities, abandoned big box stores have become schools, flea markets, churches, and senior centers. 

         Proponents of big box stores say they are convenient, provide jobs, and sell inexpensive goods to people who would not otherwise be able to afford them.
