yes, jonass, there's goes more local jobs to San Ramon, along with lower cost for grocery shoppers. Too bad this is not perceived as good news by those union parasites that just want to bleed the community dry.

Dear former unionista, Why must you be so vulgar? You know, talk like that (Jonass) does reflect on your intelligence level.
However, most peoples objections to Wal-Mart are not the stores themselves but management. Because of Wal-Mart m-i-l-l-i-o-n-s of manufacturing jobs have gone overseas. And we now we get to enjoy brake pads made out of sawdust; dog treats that are killing our dogs; cheap fish that is destroying coastlines in South America; and Rx sources that are so bad no European country will buy from them.
So unionista, I too do not support unions but perhaps you will sing a different tune if you experience brake pads that crumble, your dog suffering in agony because of bad treats (chicken jerky) and your parent or child becoming ill from a bad Rx. Maybe then you will understand why Wal-Mart is so bad. It is not the stores, it is the management of the company that is detestable.

You say it isn't the store's fault but management's. What do you mean by store's fault? Like shelves and floors and ceilings an' stuff? You mean if Walmart simply changed management the companies murderous practices would suddenly cease? Please, I so await your response.
p.s. Pay no heed to the jackal who spews his vulgarity routinely on these sites under various names. We've learned he's got the intelligence and maturity of an 8 year-old. Somewhere along the line he broke his parents' hearts.

Exactly why would you say "there goes the neighborhood?" What are you predicting? Increased city revenue, more choices for shopping, filling a previously vacant store.....and these things are presumably bad for San Ramon (and elsewhere)?
Face it, you union lemmings lost the battle against WalMart's Neighborhood Markets...it's time for you to move on. Maybe you could go picket in front of Fresh and Easy before they go out of business.......or, get a life.

The people who criticize Walmart are union members and union thugs. Walmart doesn't use labor unions, so the people who are promoters of big labor unions make up things to criticize Walmart about. When you realize this, you'll stop paying attention to the criticisms and lies.
