Thanks to all who’ve written about the huge Walmart news that has come out over the last couple of days. Most have sent this Post article:

“The four stores would be built in D.C. neighborhoods where retail options are relatively scarce: on the site of a former car dealership on Georgia Avenue NW; at New York Avenue and Bladensburg Road NE; as part of a new mixed-use development on New Jersey Avenue NW; and at East Capitol and 58th streets SE.”

One reader asks – “What exactly does that do to a neighborhood?”

The Post adds:

“Its four D.C. stores will vary from 80,000 to 120,000 square feet, a typical size for the chain. The company is also considering additional stores for the District, including a new pilot format of fewer than 30,000 square feet, according to spokesman Steven Restivo.”

How do you think that will impact these four locations? Do you think these are good locations for a Walmart?
