Big box stores: Helena v. Bozeman

I visited Helena earlier today on business. I've only been to Helena twice, so I can't offer any big insights about Helena compared to Bozeman.

I did notice that the big box stores (Home Depot, Wal-Mart, and Staples) in Helena have more garish exteriors than the same stores in Bozeman. For instance, the Helena Home Depot uses the company-standard bright orange sign and trim. The Bozeman Home Depot, on the other hand, uses sedate green trim and wood beams.

Don't worry, I'll post some pics later (;-)...
