Print More

If Thursday night’s sold out event is any indication, the issue of huge retail stores like Wal-Mart coming to town is still a topic of great interest in Vermont. The two-day symposium and debate on “Small Town America in an Era of Big Box Development” kicked off at the Vermont Law School in South Royalton and continues through Friday, addressing the pressures and opportunities that make up our rapidly changing retail climate.

Mitch Wertlieb talks with one of Thursday’s speakers, Bill McKibben, the author of numerous books including “The End of Nature.”
