I see Walmart fitting in very well with this community. It will also bring more people into the city.
We used to travel outside of Burbank to shop at Walmart. With the addition of Walmart, it will bring better prices to the area and other stores.
Sure, it will force pressure on some of the other stores, but nothing stays the same forever. When Target came to Burbank, I stopped shopping at Kmart. Why was there not the same stink raised?
The only ones I see complaining are the unions and high-priced labor. When you buy products at these stores, a portion of that price goes to cover the wage.
It would not surprise me to see Kmart close. Maybe Walmart could pick up that site too and move a Sam’s Club here!
