Because it's against zoning codes and therefore sets dangerous precedent

Why wasn't this an issue when Publix built their store there?

A dangerous precendent? Don't need to look on the internet, just drive to the new WalMart store on 41 in north Sarasota. It's nice and there has been no difference from when Winn Dixie was there.

Publix is the only thing blocking WalMart, not the lame excuses we're being fed.
Let Big Green have those willing to pay more and let WalMart have those who want to pay less.
End of debate.
