Letter: Old IKEA will open up room for Walmart

The time is now to resolve the Empire Center Walmart issue. Opponents discuss increased traffic around the center and at the busy Burbank Boulevard/Victory intersection. There is a retail location that will open in the next year or so that has ample parking for adding a Walmart and bring hundreds of jobs to Burbank. It is the current IKEA building which will be surplus when IKEA moves to its new location.

Having solved this multiyear problem, let me invite you to bring other issues for me to solve!
