Would you be okay with a Walmart in your back yard?

By
Real Estate Agent with Prudential Northwest Realty Associates

The residence of Marysville may be caught off guard to find that there are plans to build a new Walmart Super Center near them. The company has recently revisited the city and are currently going through the permit process to continue development at this site. Now there are two other Walmarts within a 5 mile radius and may pose some traffice problems. What would you do if there was a 183,000 square foot superstore next door to you?

I have mixed feelings on the issue. I can see pros and cons on both sides.

When you say next door are you saying that they are mixing residential and commercial.  If not they are great stores.

...they want the PROPERTY and SALES TAX INCOME.....If the other stores are in OTHER jurisdictions, those revenues are not coming to them.....WalMart is a good neighbor * it provides JOBS and TAX REVENUE
