Can a Walmart Be Beautiful?

By
Real Estate Broker Owner with Star View Real Estate CO: II100035296

Have you ever seen a Walmart that was so beautiful that you stopped to take a picture?  Let's face it, most Walmarts and other box stores are not particularly attractive.  Functional...yes.  Attractive.....not really. 

The Walmart in Woodland Park is an exception.   Woodland Park is a small, flourishing city located 18 miles to the west of Colorado Springs in Teller County.

This picture was taken at sunrise.  As result, some of the special features are not as noticeable.  This Walmart's features include the statue in the front, split rail fencing, very nice landscaping, decorative light fixtures in the parking lots, green instead of  the trademark blue on the building, etc.  


If you are interested in buying or selling a home in or around Woodland Park, Colorado, feel free to call or email.

Hi Sondra,

ALL Walmarts should look like that!  It is a very beautiful building.  But not the trademark Walmart that is so recognizable.

Maybe they should start doing this with more of the Walmarts. It certainly blends well with the surroundings. I think I'll send Walmart an email and tell them we want some attractive Walmart's in our area, more inviting.

If only other big giant superstores would learn from that! Blends right in and make you wanna stop there. What a great combo!
