This is the story of Ashland, VA, population 7200, where the grocery store allows charge accounts and the doctor makes house calls. Residents are proud of their small-town character. Now, this gentle way of life is jolted by the prospect of a Wal-Mart supercenter on the edge of town. STORE WARS follows events in Ashland over a one-year period, from the first stormy public hearing that galvanizes residents’ opposition till the Town Council takes a final vote on the proposed Wal-Mart store.
