Wal-Mart's shutdown leaves carless residents with few options

There are 2 comments on the Star Tribune story from Jan 27, 2016, titled Wal-Mart's shutdown leaves carless residents with few options. In it, Star Tribune reports that:

Wal-Mart's decision to shutter 154 stores across the country means that, starting Thursday, residents without cars in a neighborhood near a historically black college outside Birmingham, Alabama, will have to cross dangerous roadways on foot to get fresh produce and meat. Come Friday, folks in Coal Hill, Arkansas, will need to drive 15 miles to get to the nearest supermarket and pharmacy.
