Instead of putting in another department store, i.e. Walmart, in the Empire Center, perhaps Burbank should look into adding a Whole Foods market. The closest ones are in Glendale and Sherman Oaks, and I think it would be a good choice for Burbank.
Not only would it be a place people could shop for organic foods, but would also provide jobs. Just something for the City Council and the owner of the Empire Center to consider.
