No Wal-Mart in New York City
Looks like no Wal-mart will be built up the street from me in Rego Park, NY. The local citizenry with loads of help from the Unions have raised such a stink that the developer has given up. This
is not to say Wal-Mart has given up, just that they have to find a new developer and a new site.
I'm undecided as to whether this is a good thing. The prices are great at Wal-Mart, but the loss of locally-owned, smaller establishments might be too high a price to pay for the bargains. It's pocket book issues versus aesthetics. Kinda sounds like the Red State/Blue State election we had a few months ago.
