I'm not computer savvy at all, but there are amazing examples of what a downtown Walmart could be. If someone wants to post some pics from the link, that would be great.

A downtown Walmart should be similar to one in downtown White Plains, New York, having 2 to 3 levels of retail space and 4 to 5 levels of parking space. It has worked there successfully, and that standard should be applied in Greenville for any spacious retailer.

The possible downtown Wal-Mart should be a downtown TARGET!

That would be very nice, although I prefer something of that caliber to be built within the CBD. The One project site (Main & Washington Streets, adjacent to Piazza Bergamo) would be a perfect location for multi-level retail, in my opinion. Single-level stores are perfectly acceptable in most cases, provided they include residential, office, and/or hotel space above the street.

A multi-level Walmart sounds really cool. I've never seen one, but I think it would be a good idea
