Council continues Walmart appeals

After more than two hours of public comment on the proposed super Walmart, the City Council continued the meeting to allow consultants time to prepare a response to a two-inch stack of information Davis-based attorney William Kopper dropped on the council just before the meeting. Full Story

Who is this Kopper idiot and who pays him? He goes around the state litigating WalMarts from coming into towns. That isn't free. Somewhere there is big money behind him.

I go into Chico to shop at least 3 days a week because we have no competitive groceries, clothing stores, etc. Also spend my money there when I want to go to a decent restaurant. I would love for all those tax dollars to NOT go to Chico, but until we start bringing in places like Olive Garden, Costco, Super Walmart, Outback, Kohl's, etc, that is what is going to happen. Chico and Paradise have shot themselves in the foot by blocking Super Walmart, lets not do the same.

And thank goodness for Home Depot!

The union pays for this and other attorney's..They don't want Wal Mart to build super store because Raley's and Food Maxx will have to lower their prices or lose businrss. I to drive to Chico for my shopping. It's sad when I can spend the money for gas to drive to Chico and still save money on my shopping. There is no competition!!

Mr. Kopper go back to Davis and worry about your own community. Our city wants this investment to come to fruition.

You know, I could care less if FoodMax is union or not. What I know is that they have lousy service, and very high prices.
Raley's is rediculous, I can't stand going in there simply because of the prices and the lousy service.
So yes, Walmart is not known for its service, but at least they have better prices.

Davis has a thriving downtown area with good restaurants and cute little shops. They are what Oroville's downtown wants to be and will never get the chance to be once Wal-Mart is anchored here.
Mr. Kopper used to be mayor of Davis.
Just consider all the natural beauty of our town that will be lost with more traffic and lights that obscure the stars. Doesn't anybody in this town care about nature?
The world is full of Wal-marts if you want a low-paying job. By the way, if you think the Wal-Mart corporation would pay anyone more than $2 an hour (Americans included)if they weren't forced to adhere to "minimum" wage policies, you are living in a dream world. Once Wal-mart is in every town and all the other grocers are gone, just wait and see what the wage scale will be!

Mr. Giles is that you? Listen to yourself! You're basically throwing in the towel on demanding that any business that wants your dollars, provide GOOD CUSTOMER SERVICE. Do you go to lousy restaurants where the food might be under-cooked or over-done just because the prices are low?? You call that living?
