Box Trot

Posted By on Mon, Apr 28, 2008 at 4:36 PM

Has Wal-Mart finally found a way to open up at El Con Mall? TW contributor Dave Devine tells the TW Blog that El Con neighbors learned at a recent meeting that good ol’ Wally Mart was negotiating with Macy’s to take over the the department store’s now-vacated space at the west end of the mall. Bet the folks in El Encanto just love that idea.

Would a deal with Wal-Mart activate the restrictions of the city’s Big Box ordinance? If Wal-Mart remained within the footprint of the existing building—even if they tear it down—the world’s most favorite retailer might be able to sidestep the Big Box rules.
