Wal-Mart Dumps Carlsbad Uglification Plans

by The Editors on May 28, 2008

Walmart Logo2Break open the champagne, Wal-Mart, home of the world’s ugliest shoppers, has decided not to build a “supercenter” on land that it purchased in Carlsbad, according to a story in the San Diego Union-Tribune.

Company representatives told city officials yesterday that they would not file an application to build on their property at College Boulevard and El Camino Real in central Carlsbad. . .Instead, they would sell the 17.6 acres, which is zoned for a shopping center.

The company says it had nothing to do with “local opposition” but we’re glad they’re gone no matter who is responsible. Keep that stuff in Oside.
