Wal-Mart Gains in Its Wooing of Chicago
What would it take for urban areas to welcome Wal-Mart ? The answer seems to be a terrible job market and stores that do not look much like traditional big boxes.

I can not understand why they would not allow a Walmart to open up on the south side of Chicago. They should be glad that a Walmart is willing to open up on the south side of Chicago. First of all you create jobs; they may be paying minimum wage but they are still jobs for people who do not have any jobs now and who are simply not overley qualified for much. Also it will bring a large assortments of low priced products into those communities which are not really available there now. People from those areas drive to the suburbs to shop at a Walmart right now if they can. So what's the problem?

There really is no problem.
If people don't like shopping at WalMart, then they shouldn't go.
Oil companies buy from our enemies but no one is preventing any gas stations from opening, so those who complain about WalMart buying from China have no arguement.

that is the only way a store could make a profit ,....if they are forced to lavashly over pay the union thugs ,...... who refuse to work,....
