Walmart plans metro's 6th market

almart plans metro's 6th market
By Cindy Gonzalez
WORLD-HERALD STAFF WRITER

Retail giant Walmart has upped to six the number of neighborhood markets it wants to build in the Omaha area.

The latest grocery — southwest of 50th and L Streets, on the site of a former South Omaha car dealership — is to be reviewed Wednesday by the Omaha Planning Board.

City planners have recommended approval, and Planning Director Rick Cunningham says the additions should provide a community benefit in both service and jobs.

"As long as they can meet our zoning ordinances, come in and be good neighbors, we're all for it," he said.

The stand-alone groceries, typically about 41,000 square feet, or about one-fifth the size of a full Walmart Supercenter, each would employ about 95 people.

The markets generally stay open around the clock and offer fresh produce, a deli, bakery, meat and dairy products, frozen foods, dry goods, beauty items and a pharmacy.

Would be nice to see them place one in east omaha or south east omaha. But not a suburban style store, more of an urban store with minimal parking and a less intrusive design. Or perhaps parking under the store to keep it from looking like a suburban development.

One in North Omaha would be good. As of right now, people in North Omaha have to travel out to Irvington or the 72nd and Pine location.

There is the smaller HyVee on 30th. That is an ok place. I've been in there a few times.

What's sad about this is that a locally owned business could put the exact same thing in there and probably do better business than Walmart. It seems like all other potential businesses that were considering the area would now scrap the idea, because of their inability to match Walmart's undercutting and price matching.

i like price matching. if local businesses could price match, maybe they would do okay. some of us are on a budget you know.


that is why many avoid local grocery stores like Louis Market (which has stuff way over-priced)

that and they refuse to price match is what keeps those on a budget from coming back.




btw: No Frills is a local grocery chain and they have prices similar to Bakers or Hy-Vee. they the only local grocery store I would go to.

btw, is Avana a local grocery? cause I like them too.

btw, dont forget Aldi's is on 30th street also in north omaha.

never been to that one, but the one north of 90th and bedford where the old discount theatre was years ago is good.



btw, No Frills is also in Florence on north 30th street in the Florence area. (No Frills is local business)
