From the perspective of someone who has to carry heavy groceries home for lack of car, a nearby market is a relief. This store is seriously the only one in the area, so no competition with local markets.

Personally I am excited. I am not a grocery snob and find the same items for way less at Walmart than at the other major grocery stores. Welcome to the neighborhood and way to go for creating new jobs!!

God bless WalMart I'm very excited its moving in the neighborhood. Safeway and Raleys is much to expensive due to democrat propelled unions...FAILURE. And all you tree huggers and liberals deal with it. If you think eating grass and "organic" will make you live longer have at it but don't try and dictate and control what people want to eat.

Go WALMART!!! I think that big boxes are the way to go. I wish they could open a supercenter on every corner. I've never been to walmart, I usually go to raleys, trader joes and the farmers market... but seriously-- we have to many small stores. We need more big boxes. Also, I hope they close down that farmers market too .. Walmart has veggies right? Why do we need a farmers market? Trader Joes is to small too... I like that its a chain, but I wish I could buy an xbox, a shovel AND my milk and cookies there. I mean... it dosn't even have an automotive department!! How can I get new breaks when I shop??? More wal marts the better!

God bless Walmart? What does that mean? I really don't know what that means. Are you saying God is American or something? Or... you are telling god who is omnipotent and outside of time and space to do something to or for Walmart? I'm seriously confused and I didn't even get past the first three words of your post.
