LOWE'S MAY BE COMING TO THE MOTHER LODE--The Sierra Foothills

Here's the most recent article and  LOWE'S UPDATE provided by My Mother Lode website. This is GOOD news for some. BAD for others. Many locals are uncomfortable with a larger company moving into Sonora, CA. They feel it may take business away from the smaller guys, bring more traffic, more people. And, it may very well do all those things.

On the other side of the issue is the fact that a large company, such as LOWE'S, does NOT just "come to any-town, anywhere," unless they've done their homework and they see growth. That could be good for all. If you're a long-time local, however, you're already sick of us city folks coming up and gobbling up your beautiful land. But, remember, we only do it because we LOVE it here, as you do. 

I for one hope, IF LOWE'S comes to town, it will NOT put a strain on the smaller business guys. I hope they can both survive and thrive to their fullest.   

So, I guess we'll wait while they continue hammering out the details.
