    I would like weekly beach chair rental service. Also could be a chair club where you purchase one and pay a small fee to join then each time you return you are guaranteed a chair to use for a small fee. The fees go toward the storage.

    I am still hunting for the perfect beach chair to bring to the beach there - I found nice ones at Price Smart a few years ago - but one of my "heavier" friends put his big butt on it and it broke!

    For those of us that live here full time, a Wal Mart would be a big plus. . . They can put it away from the resort areas for the locals. . . Tourists can always not go there. . . .

    ok devil's advocate me
    do you have to pay high shippings costs to aua if you have to order from amazon and then duty?
    do you and jr's mom go to miami every so often for a shopping expedition?

    i have been told by many arubans that they would love to have a store like walmart or a cvs type of store where they could run in and buy some advil and shampoo and a pack of toilet paper in one stop.........without having to do a membership in pricesmart.

    i am not advocating for those types of stores. just questioning.

    i am relaying bits and pieces of conversations i have heard.

    ps.......i am always saying re: aruba "they tore down paradise and put up a parking lot" i would love to see aruba back as i saw in 1979.
    but progress is progress i suppose. and again, i don't live there so my opinion is really nothing.

    I would like to see some nighttime attraction for teenagers. They are to old for kiddie rides and to young for clubs/casinos. Some kind of teen club with the latest videos , games, music etc.

    I am with Charles on this one. I go to Aruba to get away from things like walmart, fast food, theme parks and all the other hassles of everyday life in the U S. Aruba was more fun and relaxing when we first started going in the 90s. Even then we had probably missed the best of times.

    Im ok with having the goats roam the center of the roadways, the electricity going off, shopping at Pueblo, walking across the tarmack at the airport and many other minor inconveniences that made Aruba so memorable. Now, its almost like going to Miami Beach. This is not a positive in my opinion.
