I've noticed an uptick in the amount of local tv ad buys from BPS, which would indicate they are "readying the market" for their arrival.
HD and WM are great stores but nothing to get excited about. If a small shopping center with an HD and WM opened no one would pay any attention to it. BPS is scheduled to open in 2020 or 2021 why would they advertise now?

Not really. Only 18% of Walmart's shoppers earn $100,000 annually per household based on 2017 statistics.

Their full parking lots are a more compelling statistic.....

As I said, they're prepping the market. This is not an uncommon practice for well known stores to start making local ad buys sometimes a few years in advance. Kohl's used to do this as they made their was across the Southeast. This, plus they know some will drive to nearby locations.

Huh? You said it appeals to all demographics. I showed you statistics that it, in fact, does not. But a full parking lot says.......what, exactly?

Are you seriously asking this?

Full parking lot = a busy merchant. A busy merchant = making money. Full parking lots tends to also mean many types of people are there (all demographics). I have now shown you why a busy parking lot is a more compelling stat than whatever it was you presented (without a link, at that).

I can tell you're on a no Wal-Mart crusade for this area, but people way smarter than you know where to put these stores. Demand is there, so Wal-Mart is coming. This is not a hard concept to grasp.

Ah I see. So rather than use facts, statistics, etc. you're going to go with the "I saw a full parking lot last Saturday, therefore this business appeals to all demographics!" argument. Gotcha. You must be a statistician or scientist with such reasoning skills.

In terms of demand, I can tell you affluent folks certainly do not want a Walmart in our neck of the woods. In fact, there was a petition circulating for a while that was unfortunately sent out well after the Walmart had already signed the contracts stating opposition to it to our local commissioners.

But to support the low-end buyers such as yourself, recently there have been a number of multi-family housing units and even rental apartments go up near that area and those people certainly have a need for cheap goods and services, so Walmart will have a good enough base for folks like you who rely on $1.99 shoes.

Considering about 18% of the population makes over 100k, that would suggest appealing to all/most demographics.

Having said that, I’m not sure many of you understand how big this development is and how long it will take to build. This is the first step. Just like Target and old navy were the first step st the SJTC.

Bass Pro Shop is a “destination retailer”. People will drive for long distances for it (a kin to IKEA) and will help to further attract retailers to the area during its long development.

One thing has nothing to do with the other. It's actually 14% making over $100K, but regardless........just because 14% of the population makes over $100K per year does not mean that those 14% shop at WalMart.

But as I said, people will flock to Walmart no matter what. Especially with the multi family units sprouting up everywhere. Their economies of scale make them able to sell things so much cheaper than most everywhere else.

Here's to hoping Amazon puts them out of business too.
