Is this just a wal-mart or a Super Wal-mart being built?

"There is nothing for us on North Hill" was stated many times during and after the 2011 flood. Here it comes, you got what you wished for, no quit complaining, you asked for it.

Why the city would allow another Walmart is beyond me.

Marketplace Foods is ten times the grocery store compared to what Walmart offers as a grocery store.

We need to encourage more businesses on north Hill. Home Depot should have been encouraged to build there. One big plus is reduction in through town traffic and the subsequent wear & tear on the streets. Another advantage is availability of jobs for transportationally challenge North Hill residents.

If it were just a plain old Wal-Mart, MarketPlace Foods wouldn't be fighting it. It is a Super Wal-mart.

They can't staff the one business they have, yet they want to add another Super Walmart and a Sam's Club? They had better make every checkout a "self checkout"

This is such a bs deal for all residents who live in the area next to the proposed Walmart site. I live off 27th Street NW and the road is already busy as is due to the Eagle's Landing development and another development that is going to be popping up. Now 27th Street is gonna get jack offs taking a residential street mind you, to get to the proposed Walmart site. Ridiculous.

Anyone with an internet connection can check the city's website to see what the future land use map shows regarding zoning. Maybe don't buy a house next to land designated for high intensity commercial use in a rapidly developing neighborhood next to a busy bypass if your not looking for that convenience? Yes having city amenities along with a country setting would be great, but the reality is you can only do that if you are MILES out of town.

It will take a few years but eventually the main arterials in that area will be built up and surrounded by development. Everything inside the bypass will get filled in, as well as scattered developments outside it. That's progress.

You hit it on the head. For years people have complained about lack of north hill business, now they want it a bit farther away.

By the way, muleskinner, Marketplace foods is better for meat and produce, but far worse and more expensive for everything else. In every city that I've lived in with a Nash Finch store(Marketplace, Miracle Mart, Econo Foods, Sun Mart) and competing stores, the competing stores offered better quality and equal or lower prices.

Who cares if they can staff it or not?! Not my problem to deal with staffing issues. Too many jobs in your town/state, terrible. I am sure many cities and towns would love to have our problems.
