Some Corrections on the Cudahy Wal-Mart

This last weekend, I heard something that was not exactly the truth but a revisionist who is a politician (Cudahy Mayor Day) hoping to get re-elected (fudging) and he was caught off guard when talking to another elected official (Milwaukee Alderman Tony Zielinski) about Wal-Mart.

More on the South Milwaukee Wal-Mart

Retail, Wal-Mart

"We're looking to serve our customers all over the state," said Wisconsin-based Wal-Mart spokeswoman Lisa Nelson.  "There's plenty of opportunity in Milwaukee.”  Last week, South Milwaukee agreed to sell 3.5 acres of land to Gatlin Development Co., a Tennesseebased developer that is assembling what will be an 11-acre parcel on N. Chicago Ave. Gatlin hopes to build a nearly 120, 000-square-foot Wal-Mart store that would sell both groceries and general merchandise.  The size is a bit smaller than its typical 140, 000-square-foot supercenter and is sized appropriately for the neighborhood, according to Nelson.
