How many people will be coming out from MILWAUKEE to use this store. It is one straight shot for them.

Here's my question - With the Woodman's a little way away, How will this negatively affect the neighborhood? I mean, I can see if it's a merchandise store, but a grocery store?
Nuitari (Grand Master Editor) September 18, 2012 at 12:53 AM
If there's something to be sold, there's something to be stoled. This means you Milwaukee citizens.

Why did the Wal-Mart close on Brown deer Road in Milwaukee?

Too much inventory loss to write off

Excellent question, let me answer that for you. A certain demographic continually ruins their neighborhoods and commerce that they keep moving west like a cancer.

They need a place to shop for the 300 appartments being built off Pilgrim rd . Just think of all the new students for the school dist and athlets's it will bring to the schools . Craig you comments could be perceived as racist ..
Nuitari (Grand Master Editor) September 21, 2012 at 04:24 PM

I guess I just do not understand why we need this when we have a full service walmart just a couple miles down the road. That walmart has gotten noticably nicer since they opened the one on silver spring. Hopefully its customers will stay there.
dennis barth October 23, 2012 at 09:41 PM

dennis barth October 23, 2012 at 09:48 PM
