Brookins: Wal-Mart opening late next year

I was just listening to V103 (102.7 FM - WVAZ) and Alderman Howard Brookins said that if the Wal-Mart vote goes well this week, the Wal-Mart project could get out of committee.

Alderman Brookins said that depending on the weather, ground could be broken by this year, and the Chatham store could be open by late next year.

We can check the news for official statements, but that's the news off of the radio.

It's a confusing situation, as the Chatham Wal-Mart was stuck due to Ed Burke and the Finance Committee.

However, the Pullman store had to go through the Zoning Committee, which it did.

After that, Ald. Burke made comments that can lead one to believe that the Chatham store would be "released" from limbo.

We should know by the end of the week where the situation stands.
