Wasn't Sprouse the same one that denied an liquor license to Sam's Club in order to protect Jim Philips monopoly, costing the city the sales tax revenue and jobs created by the Springdale Sam's club?

Why the change of attitude?

No, Mayor Sprouse was the one that helped Macadoodles come to Springdale. Not exactly a thing that would promote Jim Phillips' monopoly. Doug is always for ideas to bring money into Springdale. I believe the previous mayor was in office when Sam's Club moved out.

Thanks for the clarification. Sam's leaving cost Springdale a ton of sales tax revenue. Who was the Mayor then?

kill,

You might want to eat your words. I noticed this was your first post ever. If you check you will see that sprouse always votes against anything to do with liquor, he says it is on moral grounds. He is a bible thumper and considers drinking a sin, so much for what he knows about what the bible says about drinking alcohol. When old sprouse makes a statement like this he is judging those who do drink, typical bible thumper. You are wrong sprouse he voted against Macadoodles on his beloved moral grounds. Obviously you are a chum of his so we know where you are coming from. Must have agitated you what new423a said, all I can say to you is it is hard to defend ignorance. Tell you buddy sprouse I said hello.

somewon,

If you don't like the Mayor Spouse, you could always move to Fayetteville where their pink (er "Green") lawmakers wouldn't let a cookie company in on moral grounds.

It's okay to cash that big paycheck, but don't let the boss catch you rolling in dough.

He voted against Sunday liquor sales. But encouraged everyone to vote how they wanted to vote. He was very much for Macadoodles coming to Springdale.

Love it! "No, Mayor Sprouse was the one that helped Macadoodles come to Springdale. Not exactly a thing that would promote Jim Phillips' monopoly. Doug is always for ideas to bring money into Springdale. I believe the previous mayor was in office when Sam's Club moved out.".

All part of a larger plan. And Jim is Hewitt's son in law. That is where the Springdale Liquor Association monopoly originated. Good to see some competition now.

It is funny but the association store across from Mac a Doodles on Elm Springs road has the lowest prices of any store in the region including Jim's other stores. Penny pinchers and people on a budget take note: One of my former favorite beverages was $11.32 with tax at every liquor association store but the same thing costs less than a $10.00 bill including tax at the store across from Mac a Doodles. Unlike Obamacare, competition makes for bargains!

Losing Sam's was a bust but "they" will make up for it with a regional draw that might nearly rival the "Mall of the Americas" on that big empty patch between the ballpark and Tontitown. It won't be dependent on drawing business away from the Promenade or Pinnacle point, it will bring folks from hundreds if not thousands of miles away. No routine stores like Sam's or Wal-Mart will make the cut there.

Losing Sam's won't sting quite as much then.

Still waiting for a answer, what are you afraid of ? You defend this guy but won't or can't back it up. Being that this is Sunday, when you get through bible thumping give a answer.
