There are Amazon stores. I don't know any locations. A Dollar General type is my guess.A public locally owned bank would likely return the most benefits to Big Bear.

If the local K-Mart closes, my personal preference would be a Target over a Walmart. I feel that much of the merchandise from Walmart tends to be a bit inferior compared to Target. BRING THE RED!

They who own the property must find a tenant that can pay the rent.. or they will sell the property. Anyone knows who owns the property?

Not necessarily there was a Kmart down here by us, it closed and the property owner entered into a contact with Home Depot to occupy it. The town folk ran Home Depot away so it sits vacant with a 24 hr guard and has been vacant for about 8 years +-. The owner of the property is a family trust and estimates by local real estate agents are that they are losing around $110-150K per month in lost revenue. Due to the town folks action the trust refuses to rent the eyesore and speculation is they just take a tax right off instead.

Should K-Mart shut it's doors, Subway and the quilt shop will be all that remain.

Too bad electricity is expensive, a big cold box is perfect for server farms or bitcoin mining..,

How about a climate-protected pot plant?

Just had the best shopping experience at Stater Bros. EVER! Easy parking, hardly anyone in the store, no lines. Seemed like mostly locals. Nice convo with cashier Ms. Sherry who just got her electricity and cable back on in Fawnskin.

If you want to post productive suggestions to help people that's awesome, we're all for it and that's what this is for! But the past few days has been nothing but whining about traffic and how much Big Bear sucks and how glad folks are to be moving out. Do whatcha go to do, the rest of us are moving forward with or without you to try and create a resolution that will better our valley for everyone.

Benny,

I get that, but people coming up here and that live DTH need to see these conversations so they know what go’s on up here from a local’s perspective so they know what creates issues. I see it as an educational tool. I’ve been using this site since 2007 and I use it because I know I can have those conversations with other locals in an easy and quick way. Navigating deep into the website to post something that 10% of people go see is pointless in my humble opinion, but whatever man.....will do.
