Walmart will benefit downtown

-A +A
For me, Walmart Neighborhood Grocery is a win, win, win situation. As a consumer, Walmart Neighborhood Grocery gives Lincoln residents an affordable alternative to shopping as it is located conveniently in the heart of Lincoln. As a business owner, Walmart Neighborhood Grocery will bring additional traffic to the downtown area and encourage residents and visitors to get into the habit of shopping downtown on a regular basis, right next to Mr. Pickle’s. The downtown businesses also look forward to providing services and products to the 95 associates Walmart Neighborhood Grocery will employ. Lastly, and most importantly, Walmart Neighborhood Grocery will be a wonderful addition to the community, providing jobs, much needed sales tax revenue and support to the Lincoln community.
