Conway does battle over a Walmart

Posted By on Mon, Mar 12, 2012 at 6:41 AM

Conway has tussled before about a new Walmart near a residential area and a good fight is apparently brewing at the Planning Commission at 7 p.m. tonight on a new Walmart Neighborhood Market on Prince Street. I recommend the comment thread on the Log Cabin Democrat article for a taste of the varying viewpoints on the issue.

My only comment is irrelevant to the land use issue but not to the "economic development" noise often raised in such circumstances: Some still believe new retail stores create jobs, as if retail demand expands, rather than migrates, because another big box pops up.
