No News is WalMart News

The new Luther Express Walmart closed January 29, 2016.

The new Luther Express Walmart closed January 29, 2016.

Remember this shiny store? Opened May 2015 and closed last January? Remember how the Town of Luther sold the land for the promise of a grocery store? Remember how Walmart constructed the store valued at $1.4 million?

We remember.

What’s going on with the sale, lease, razing or anything with the property three months after its closure?

The answer: NOTHING.

An email into the corporate spokesperson brought this response this morning.

“Thanks for reaching out. No update at this time.”

There you have it.

    Walmart… the betrayer of small towns. I remember and avoid you in all towns.

Have a thought? Please share. And thanks.
