When does it open

Original post made by Ben, Pleasanton Meadows, on Apr 22, 2013

The new Walmart grocery that is. Anyone know? It will be nice to have a grocery option close enough to walk to.

Yes, I'm especially looking forward to bare shelves and long lines, both endearing Walmart qualities we've all come to know and love.

Cass...if you couldn't answer my question why can't you keep your uncalled for, sarcastic comments to yourself.
Maybe someone with some intelligence will respond with the answer.

Hmmmmm, intelligence? That term strikes me as being not very compatible with typical Walmart shoppers. Are you familiar with Walmart practices, both domestic and abroad, or is your intelligence restricted to your walk to and from the store?

As to opening date, you might try calling Walmart's corporate office. I'm sure they'll have a part-time, food stamp supplemented person only too happy to supply you with the info you desire.

I checked with the city. The opening is scheduled for mid July.
And thanks to whomever removed all the uncalled for, stupid comments on this post.
It gets harder and harder to ask a simple question here and get an intelligent answer.

Walmart offers some of the best prices around and don't you know that goods that you purchase from other stores or (Macy's etc) use a lot of the same practices? Also if you have any portfolio of investments Walmart is either in them or their vendors are. Some people allow themselves to be "high and mighty". That characteristic is not becoming.

Nice try, Nan.

Some people have principles and act upon them.

Others act like pigs at the trough. Hope those penny mark-downs are worth it for you. Oink.
