Walmart Asks For Public Support



Bookmark and Share

Walmart is looking for support in a Sioux Falls neighborhood where they want to build a store.

Pamphlets arrived in mail boxes around the proposed site at 85th and Minnesota. After vocal opposition from some neighbors, Walmart is hoping to find some support. The pamphlets voice the advantages a fourth Walmart would bring to Sioux Falls.

The issue of whether to build a proposed Walmart at the 85th and Minnesota area continues and Walmart seems to not give up.

The big box corporation mailed out pamphlets to residents in that area. They promote growth of the store and asking for support.

Residents like David Larson lives within a couple blocks. He likes the idea of having a new store in his area.

“With their plans to have a low profile and with the landscaping they are submitting, I have no objections to a Walmart store being located at this location,” said Larson.

Larson thinks the store would come in handy. Yet, he understands some of the concerns and has some reservations of his own.

“We have no objection to a Walmart store. It’s just that we don’t believe there should be a main entrance off of 85th Street. I think the entrance should be off Minnesota Avenue,” said Larson.

Larson says he won’t be sending back his postcard showing his support.

In a nearby neighborhood is Brenna Tate. She also received the pamphlet and says he’s against building a new big box store.

“Name one place in town where a store of that magnitude is across the street from single family homes with young children. That is concerning to me,” said Tate.

Being a mother of three, her kids like to play outside. She would rather not have increased traffic on a road so close to her home.

“All my neighbors have young kids,” said Tate.

Tate might have her mind made up but she might send in her survey.

“I might but maybe with a different message,” said Tate.

The pamphlet says Walmart will bring about 250 new jobs to the city, along with construction jobs. The pamphlet points out benefits including health care coverage and opportunities for advancement.
 
The pamphlet also says way the big box store will give back to organizations in South  Dakota.
