I love it! I hope they don't appeal because I heard some people purposely signed it knowing they were not eligible so this would happen. Dublin has a nice Walmart and so too will Westerville someday. Best of all, something that's been an eyesore for too long gets redeveloped and starts producing revenue, which eases the burden for all of us. At the rate things are going, the seniors may need these jobs to pay their property taxes to remain in this school district!

Uptown business owners: you are wrong. We will continue to support you because the product lines are completely different. But if we find you are behind an appeal, we will stop shopping in Uptown and 4th Friday because this elitism must stop. Stop hiding behind traffic cries that are not valid when it's local people who will use it. Nobody from outside Westerville will travel to a mini Walmart. Game over, common sense wins.

This absolutely cracks me up! Will the Anti-Walmart people just knock off their pathetic efforts. I'm tired of their efforts.

Let's break ground tomorrow in the revitalization of the strip mall area!

Why are there so many complaints about Walmarts?-----Has anyone ever read about Walmarts in other places, for example the reviews featured on "YELP" via WhitePages online?-----Personally, I will not be a Walmart Patron, unless if someday all of the other Stores to be gone, except Walmart to remain (btw, for the fun of it, ever read about Walmart via "URBAN DICTIONARY"?), however, for those wanting/desiring the Walmart, you can have it and should account it as part of your LEGACY, no matter what happens?-----Keep in mind that the people in charge of making decisions for, in this case, Westerville, aren't always right and at least two of them live in Columbus, also recall that the Mayor doesn't care, she's guilty of saying the "D" word with children present, What kind of example is that?
