These small convience stores were no threat to McDonalds. Anyway, it just goes to show you that big corporations all bully anyone who they want. Corporations have many benefits but the negatives they bring in to a community, such as killing small time business, or aka. entrepreneurship, really make you wonder if we've taken the correct road as a society. A burger for a buck is nice but is a corporate ruled society worth it?
That's most big corps. I like to think there are one or two good ones.
