Arvada doesn't have a Walmart. It's coming to sell affordable goods and services to a great community. We'll see you there!

I LOVE sarcasm! Hundreds of low paying jobs with no benefits, a great place to purchase Foreign made products with profits going to Walton family. If you're lucky maybe a Wal-Mart truck driver will hit you like Tracy Morgan

I hope they build with decent plumbing & don't have to shut down in couple of years to fix like their other stores. Maybe this' will be the first union Wal-Mart since their current business model is cracking

Im glad you do. It's affective.

Lol. You do know they pay above minimum wage right? And partying employees did receive medical benefits until obamacare kicked in and the law forced Walmart to remove such benefits. So you hate affordable goods and services for poor Americans and Americans in general? Lastly, Walmart is publicly traded so those who invest and save for retirement receive the benefit of Walmart doing well.

See you there!

Lol. Wow. Full of judgment. You must be one if you'd seen people shop there. Arvada needs Walmart or that triangle sits there an ugly deterrent.

Lol. The greenest with the city is to redo the drain and sewer system prior to building. Why is "their current business model is cracking"? Cite your source

Wal-Mart Corporate HW let go 400 people so they can ship them to Arvada store. Heard Wal-Mart got a sweet deal to open store while Arvada keeps increasing my taxes.

Not true. Walmart raised their wages for the lower rung and laid off many to offset the cost. That's what raising the minimum wage does. Causes job loss.

Tell us.... The alternative is a crappy rundown shopping area that no one uses. You like crappy rundown shopping areas??? Sad

Wal-Mart Corporate letting people go. What's going on Wal-Mart, chickens come home to roost? What Federal law FORCED Wal-Mart to not offer medical benefits? Majority of Wal-Mart employees "part time' & work less then 40 hrs weekly. Rumor has it Wal-Mart paid Tracy Morgan over $90 million just to him. The Truck driver who hit him being railroaded. Love the photos of peoplewho shop @ Wal-Mart. Will this walmsrt sell booze?

Wal-Mart received a sweet deal from Arvada that I wish they'd pass along to the rest of us. Maybe the upper management who were let go can be "lower rung" employees. The Wal-Mart by me last holiday season had boxes customers could donate food for employees.
