WALMART Backs out of DC deal in poorest neighborhoods

No one on here seems to be talking about Walmart’s decision to back out of its deal to build 2 more stores in DC. I do not support Walmart as a consumer, but what upsets me is that DC made big decisions based on Walmart coming to NE and SE DC. The city closed businesses and razed buildings all for nothing. People lost their jobs and were hoping to get back in their feet when the Walmart arrived. Now that’s not happening. It’s a very sad situation for those low wage workers and for SE DC’s business development prospects.
