Wal-Mart Submits Signatures for Store
Wal-Mart Stores Inc. said it had submitted signatures to qualify an Inglewood ballot referendum to overturn an ordinance that effectively bars the retailer from building a supercenter store in that city.
Hermanita Harris, the city’s interim city clerk, has 30 days to certify that the retailer has the roughly 4,250 signatures needed to qualify the measure, out of more than 9,250 signatures submitted.
After that, the City Council must either call an election or repeal the ordinance, she said.
Unions had lobbied to stop the nonunion Wal-Mart from building a store.
