    Walmart proposes a dozen stores in San Diego

    Walmart proposes a dozen stores in San Diego

    Retail giant releases plan before council vote on supercenter ordinance
    By Craig Gustafson
    January 27, 2011 at 6:49 p.m.

    With a repeal of San Diego‚€™s supercenter ordinance all but certain, Walmart began a public-relations blitz Thursday to convince skeptical city leaders to approve a slew of its stores in the near future.

    The world‚€™s largest retailer said it wants to build a dozen stores in the city over the next five years as a sign of its commitment to bringing low-cost food and goods to San Diego residents. Walmart said the stores ‚€” which will come in varying sizes and formats, including an unspecified number of supercenters ‚€” would boost the region‚€™s economy by creating 1,400 jobs.

    The first step to breaking ground on those proposed stores begins Tuesday when the City Council is expected to repeal an ordinance that requires retailers, such as Walmart, to conduct an economic analysis of a supercenter‚€™s impact as part of the city‚€™s permitting process. Critics say it creates a de facto ban on supercenters.

    The next step will be far more difficult: Convincing city officials to approve construction of Walmart stores.

    The city is home to four of the county‚€™s 18 Walmarts, but a council majority has long been opposed to supercenters ‚€” stores of 90,000 or more square feet with 10 percent of floor space dedicated to nontaxable items such as groceries and prescription drugs. A ban on supercenters was approved and then quickly reversed in 2006 before the current supercenter ordinance was adopted hastily in December.

    Walmart responded with a speedy signature drive that will force a costly public vote on the ordinance ‚€” unless the council admits defeat and repeals the measure.

    Maggie Sans, Walmart‚€™s vice president of public affairs, said the retailer released its five-year plan Thursday because it‚€™s focused on solutions.

    ‚€œThe big-box ordinance might be good politics, but it‚€™s bad business and it‚€™s bad for San Diego families,‚€

    Oh geeze, we will never escape them. Wal mart will be like Starbucks - one on every corner. Pretty soon they will be devouring other major stores like Ralphs and Albertsons. Im sure they have already taken business away from them anyway.

    The only thing I buy from Walmart is a generic RX.
    I can get a 3 month supply for $10.
    and they will even mail it to my house at no extra cost so I don't have to drive over there.
    You can't beat that for price and service.

    15,031 New Businesses Added to our E-Verify Database

    By Chris Chmielenski, Tuesday, April 13, 2010, 12:49 PM EST - posted on NumbersUSA

    More than 15,000 new businesses have been added to our E-Verify database today, increasing the total number of businesses to 195,885. That‚€™s nearly 200,000 of your local restaurants, dry cleaners, car washes, and grocery stores that you can check to see if they‚€™re protecting American jobs by only hiring legal workers.

    Since Roy announced our E-Verify searchable database last week, you‚€™ve made 64,109 searches!

    There have been a couple favorites. Walmart and Home Depot topped the list of the most frequently searched companies. Hopefully, you felt a little more at ease when you found out that they both use E-Verify! . . .

    Thanks for this. Sometimes it seems as if almost nothing is going pro-Americans way. News such as this really helps.
