Default Does anybody know if they are going to build a Walmart out in Hazel Green or Meridianville?

I have been studying this topic for a long time and haven't really got any results. I heard that Walmart was trying to buy land out this way but nobody would sell. Anybody know if this is true or not?

Don't know...I've heard the same rumors, too.
I figure it'd probably work. I'm amazed at how many people in H.G./Meridianville/New Market drive to the Walmart in Fayetteville rather than the one in North Huntsville.

I think it has alot to do with the service levels....and attitudes(or more accurately lack of attitudes) that you get from the Fayetteville Walmart. Plus it is much cleaner and nicer than the one on 231....I always get the heebie jeebies when I absolutely have to go in the one on 231 in N HSV...

It takes about 10 to 15 minutes to get to the Wal-Mart in North HSV from my current abode. The atmosphere is more "urban", a bit hectic and the lines are unnecessarily long.

It takes twice as long to get to the one in Fayetteville, but the atmosphere is probably a bit more "comfortable" for certain folk. The lines were a bit shorter, but the time it takes to get there pretty much cancels that benefit out. Plus I end up being tempted to stop at the state line for lotto tickets.

Personally, I hate the oversaturation of Wal-Marts all over this state, let alone HSV. Having one in Meridianville or Hazel Green would just be overkill. Then again, folks west of Chapman Mtn could use a Wally World out that way.

Do you really want a Wal-Mart?

People of Walmart: a collection of all the creatures that grace us with their presence at Walmart, America's favorite store.

Yes, one is scheduled to be built on the corner of Charity Lane & the Parkway, in the Farmer's field. Hopefully soon. No clothing though.

I voted no, because I felt that no one knows.

Well, I better take pictures of Griner's while it still exists. Poor Griner's. I really like that dorky little grocery store. And the bakery does great cakes. Too much frosting, sure, but they really love making cakes.

Edited to add: From downtown Hazel Green (the traffic light,) it's the same distance to either Walmart. Meridianville is five miles south, so they're closer to Sparkman Dr. Not sure about New Market. I'm not really fond of either of them. You trade cars with thumping music for pickups with thumping exhausts. Better than Kmart (how does that nasty little thrift-store-feeling thing stay open anyhow?)

I think why people do not want to go to the North Huntsville location is because it is dangerous. Stopped in the other night and if they got to have a security guard patrolling the lot.

I can't argue there. I don't believe I have EVER been to that Wal Mart.

Also Hazel Green has more and more people every year. It's a great location. It will pull people from Meridianville and Hazel Green and from just over the state line too.
