Big Stores Small Towns (No. 902)

  • Aired: 10/28/2007
  • 27:50
  • Rating: NR
When national "box store" chains want to move into smaller Montana communities, how does the town handle it? While it can be a positive economic indicator, critics argue it can change more than the business landscape. This program examines three Montana towns (Polson, Havre and Hamilton) which are facing difficult growth and planning issues.
