No Longer a Healthy Food Desert

I have had ~ half a dozen positive shopping experiences at the new Walmart in Bronzeville. In particular, i like the large produce section. I have found the employees and other shoppers to be nice.

I know that many Liberals oppose Walmart for driving out small mom and pop business in small towns, but for inner city places like Bronzeville - I think these stores are very good for the community - fresh produce, modestly priced food and some OK jobs for locals.

I think we should work to bring in other box stores like a Home Depot to aide local renovation - it could be a source for construction jobs.

  • Home Depot doesn't need you to tell them where to open stores.

  • jaye els Returned to Hyde Park Kenwood

    We should "encourage" stores like Home Depot to "invest" in stores in improving communities like Bronzeville.

    Home Depot can make a profit by investing in our communities, invest in improving our communities bring needs products, services, jobs and tax base to neighborhoods that were once written off.
