Can someone explain what the issue is here? An unknown company is taking over and remodeling (at their expense) over 50,000 sq ft of vacant space. An unknown company is going to sell something, and provide $$ to the tax base of Boulder. An unknown company will be providing jobs. Who cares what company it is.
Welcome!! Perhaps Boulder's prices will drop a bit and those with limited funds will be able to afford more. And, there are plenty of Boulder grown employers who have more labor mistakes than anyone would imagine. HOORAY FOR WALMART.
A Walmart grocery will certainly give that overpriced Safeway across 28th Street a run for the money! Oh, wait, that poor Safeway is not a national chain, or is it? What about the little King Soopers? Even the Trader Joe's that Boulderites are salivating over? Whole Foods?? What the hey, they're....all...out of state owned retailers.But there are plenty of other comments from readers unhappy about the move....
Grow up, Boulder! We all shop at chains, OMG -- even -- WALMART!!
I can't help but feel sorry for whoever gets those jobs and has to contend with all the rage Boulderites are gonna take out on them.
What a shame. Louisville managed to make Sam's Club the worst performing store in the nation -- Boulder, you can do this!
Labor conscious shoppers will continue to shop at Costco in Superior.
Boulder with a Wal-Mart... I never thought I'd see the day :(That day's not here yet, but it should be before long. Unless there's an unexpected delay, the store is expected to be open for business this fall.
