By now, most residents have heard the news that K-Mart will be closing. Given the typical emptiness of the parking lot, it's not exactly shocking news. Whenever a business closes shop, I always think of the employees and what it's like for them knowing the end is coming in a matter of weeks. I suppose the more positive approach is to think that something new will no doubt come to that prime spot and hopefully bring better jobs than those that have been lost.

So what would you like to see come to Billings? Maybe a Trader Joe's? Perhaps something more unusual like an indoor flea market or craft mall?

My feeling is this: Anything but a casino!
