Wal-Mart unveiled plans to build stores at several locations on the south side including two Wal-Mart Supercenters @ 111th St. & Doty and 83rd St. & Stewart. Well we already know about those.
Also a Wal-Mart Express store @ 83rd & Stewart and 71st & Western. We at least already know about a Wal-Mart Express coming to 83rd & Stewart at the Chatham Market Shopping Center.
Finally we already know about a Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market to be located @ 76th & Ashland where Mayor Daley hosted this press conference which unveiled more plans for a Wal-Mart.
BTW, this Defender article talked about the 6th Ward race and got a comment about Wal-Mart from Ald. Lyle:
Walmart Stores Inc. plans to open a store in the neighboring 21st Ward this summer at 83rd Street and Stewart Avenue. But Lyle predicts a Walmart store would hurt small businesses in her ward and she is working with those businesses to help them remain competitive and open.OK, would very much like to hear more about the plan to help those smaller businesses compete against Wal-Mart. If not just from Ald. Lyle, also from her challenger Roderick Sawyer. The Chatham Market Wal-Mart is coming.
