Everything that goes in that area eventually fails. At least Walmart would stabilize the strip mall. If the area wants a vote on proper use, buy the property. What did the residents expect when they bought property right by an aging, abandoned strip mall?
Westerville residents have already proven they won't support a bookstore, fabric store, department store or computer store (across the street). Most of the problem in the intersection comes from the quick stop places like Chipotle, Flowerama and gas station. Westerville's solution? Allow a new bank in the outlot of Kroger. Yeah, banks do a great job calming traffic.
My guess is the strip mall on Rt. 3 with the movie theater will pay the biggest price. There is talk of Aldi leaving, dollar general probably won't survive a Walmart. It will be even worse than it is with the card place and bars.

I think a New Walmart in Westerville will be too close to the Walmart on Morse Rd. across the street from Wexner's Easton, don't you think?

Not to mention that A&P (in the former Big Lots space) was also 24 hours and I would guess Big Bear was also open longer hours. And wasn't it Stump's after A&P left town? I think Stump's took the better A&P stores and the smaller ones became Super Duper stores. After Stump's went out of business down, that location became a Super Duper. I'm pretty sure all the Stump's stores were also open 24 hours - there was one near my grandparents' house.

The clock is ticking on lower food prices coming to Westerville. All of you who wailing and gnashing must have plenty of disposable income to pay those high prices at Kroger. If WM put in one of its gas stations that would help lower the prices at the Shell station at state and Schrock. Now that would be nice!!! A WalMart gas station. Mr Hadler we'll take one of those too!
