Walmart Coming to Oak Cliff

This just in from City Hall.
Walmart plans to double its stores in Dallas and build three stores in Southern Dallas, with a plan to put in one major store and two neighborhood markets in part of the city that lacks good access to groceries and particularly fresh meat and produce.
The large store is planned for I-35 at Ledbetter, a city official said.
Two smaller neighborhood market stores will be built in Oak Cliff at Fort Worth Avenue and Hampton and in Pleasant Grove at South Buckner and Scyene roads.
Most of southern Dallas recently opened up to the sale of beer and wine after voters overwhelmingly supported an effort to eliminate dry lines in the city.
The inability to sell alcohol has long been cited by grocers as an impediment to opening stores south of the Trinity River.
“Clearly, Walmart understands the strong economic fundamentals of our city’s economy and sees tremendous potential,” Leppert said in a prepared statement. “And all indications are, if these stores do well, especially in Southern Dallas, more stores will come.”
