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.

WOOHOO!! Yep, break out the bubbly!! That was the best news I heard all day! Every time I drive by there and think there might be a Walmart there, it makes me ill. Now I can be happy! I just hope it isn’t sold to anyone similar. Yep, I’ll bet the local opposition had a lot to do with it! Plus, the site is a dumb one for a Walmart. Glad you report on these things — keep up the good work! Other local papers say nothing about this important stuff!
