An article came out in The Washington Post about the development of new Wal-Mart in Tysons.

Also, Metro accessible in near future. Looks like our own special Tysons edition is coming soon on peopleofwalmart.com!

Hopefully, the new roads with all of the construction can handle a bigger load of traffic.

It'll be handy for the people who live/work right in the area. There don't seem to be enough stores there selling everyday items. I'm not sure it would increase traffic, but I do hope they have a light where customers are supposed to turn for parking.

I thought today was April 1st, but no, it's not! What would WaPo gain by pulling such a stunt?

I was bummed when the CVS closed inside the mall. It was always packed with tourists and people who work in the area. Several times since I've been there with my kids and wished I could stop somewhere for wipes or something.

Yeah, that's a small part of why I'm moving from Vienna to Leesburg, the diversity of shopping in Leesburg is just so much better -- cute downtown area, nice selection of older strip malls, convenient big box shopping.

Not another WalMart. We need another Target! Ha! ha! Or, how about a Wegman's?? That would be an asset to Tysons.
