HIAWATHA, Kan. — Francis Duncan operates a farm and home store and Don Koontz runs the downtown hardware store. Like other local merchants, their biggest competitor is Wal-Mart.
"We don't try to compete with them; there's no way. We let them do their thing and we do ours," Duncan said. "If they get something we have, we just close it out."
