WalMart Proposes Urban Model Superstore for City Neighborhood Edge

This proposal has stirred up many neighbors and small businesses in nearby downtown Sarasota.  Folks are concerned about a very large, 24/7 operation that does not have the infrastructure or buffering to accommodate such a store.  Nearby businesses are concerned by the potential competitive imbalance.

Candy Spaulding wrote an excellent Guest Editorial to the Sarasota Herald tribune that discusses these issues.  Please take a look at this well written article.
