WHY NOT WALMART?

Real-life experiences and peer-reviewed studies show that a Walmart Supercenter at Suburban Plaza will:

  • Add to traffic in the already-congested roads surrounding the center
  • Jeopardize the lives of people being served by emergency vehicles
  • Lower property values, when the housing market is at a record-low
  • Disrupt the livelihoods of small business owners
  • Cause a net job loss as Walmarts destroy 3 jobs for every 2 created
  • Erode the middle class with low-wage jobs and underemployment
  • Add pressure to taxpayer-funded programs, such as Medicaid
  • And more
