Wal Mart is Coming to the West Side

41 walmart Wal Mart is Coming to the West Side

A new Wal Mart is scheduled to open in the place that once housed a Publix Supermarket. That is great news for people who live and work in the area.

Months after the Publix shut down on Martin Luther King Blvd near the Atlanta University Center, there will be the opening of a Super Wal-Mart at that site.

Mayor Kasim Reed said a few words at the announcement of the store opening.

Great news for people who live and work in the area because not only will Wal-Mart provide groceries but also affordable household items, toys, furniture, clothing  and electronics. In addition several jobs will also provide much needed economic stability for residents and students. The news was first mentioned about 2 weeks ago in an exclusive story in the Atlanta Inquirer.
