    I am currently a walmart associiate in another store and I was thrilled to learn that Kaufman is finally getting a walmart. Since we live in Kemp, and my husband works for Kaufman ISD, this will be more convenient for the both of us. Im definatly looking forward to their opening.][beam]

    [sad]. As a resident of Kaufman I have done my part in helping the community
    And enjoy it. However, I am very unhappy with the arrival of
    Walmart, I feel that normal people like me were not involved
    In the agreement that Walmart can move into our town.
    We do not need Walmart and all the troubles it brings with it.

    as much as I am happy that Walmart is coming....now I know why many roads here in Kaufman and Kaufman County are not being taken care of. They are using the money for Walmart.
