I don't know that you're the minority, Dwntnr, and that's what worries me. A WalMart in our core is NOT the development that downtown needs. A box store surrounded by a massive parking lot is a waste of prime space, and will depress already low wages downtown.

Sure, you'll be able to get milk for $3.99 and bread at 8pm on a Thursday, but that comes at the cost of eliminating decent-paying, fulltime jobs at owner-operated shops and replacing them with minimum wage jobs at an employer who prides itself on not offering full-time employment.
