Does anyone know if the new super walmart will have an auto center, like the one in chico that sells tires, and does oil changes?

Once again the environmental/green movement is all about control! The people that are appealing Walmart dont care about anything but their agenda and its not about the environment. Environmental/Green movement = CONTROL.

Without an increase in population, it is unlikely that a super Walmart will result in either increased employment or lower food prices. Every potential new customer to support increased employment is now trading elsewhere and would have to switch to Walmart, resulting in loss of jobs at other local businesses. Walmart has a practice of lowering prices only to meet the competition. Eliminate the competition and the lower prices vanish.
As to the existing store, it is unrealistic to believe that it will find a use in the near future. Look at the history of finding new tenants or owners of other Oroville stores that have closed, two former Safeway stores, Penney's, Wards, Woolworth, and more.
Be realistic and don't buy into the Walmart PR bs.

Almost every single store you listed was already closed when WM came to Oroville.

Who are these so called "friends of Oroville"??? What is your problems? The numbers speak for themselves, more people are wanting the New Super Store. Why are you so special that you should decide what this town needs or doesn't need. A hand full of people should not decide this issue. City Council needs to listen to the whole area who are in favor. If you "Friends" think stopping WalMart, your down town stores will come alive, you have another think coming. Your stores are DEAD. High prices and little to chose from and snooty owners who look at us like we are going to steal . Your lack of business, is your own fault. Just because you think you are better than the shoppers at WalMart is one of the main reasons your stores DIDN'T have a great weekend. Why should we (WalMART SHOPPERS) buy anything from you. I will be at that meeting and will voice my opinion there also. I already know one council member who will vote against it. She is looking out for her own best interest. Hey Lady, DOWNTOWN IS DEAD !!!

The "Friends of Oroville" must be clones (or the same people) of the "Friends of Bidwell Park" in Chico. Bored with their secure dominance over all things Bidwell they've turned their attention to our sleepy little town and the big, scary WMart monster headed our way. Thanks "Friends" of the BIG O for your prudent concern for our town's well-being.

Let me have the freedom to shop where I want. A Super Walmart is a choice I want to be able to make. The increased sales tax revenues to the City of Oroville is a good thing we need. I shop local now, but find myself having to go to Chico to get the things I can't find in Oroville. Why should my sales tax dollars go to a city that has no respect for where I live? People protesting Walmarts in general should stay in their own neigborhoods and leave our community alone.

Dizzy was a good choice for you. This community doesn't have much with the exception of people like you wanting it to stay that way. Try this analogy, you are a stagecoach and we are the train. Thanks for being you so we can see what really needs to happen here, bring that big boy on, got lot of room in Oroville for economic activity.

The new Walmart is a good idea because the old one is funny, dirty and hard to get to.

Wrong Neil, that place makes money and provides a service. We need to get rid of things that don't, can you think of any, I can.
