Well, consider it divulged:
Case for Blacksburg Wal-Mart gets strongerFunny thing is, if it had turned out to be an IKEA store, which is also a big box retailer, it probably would not have met much resistance. That's a Swedish company and the hip, happenin', enlightened, and smarter-than-the-rest-of-us college community in Blacksburg doesn't have a problem with Scandinavians. It's only the USA these pampered geniuses who live out their lives on the public dole there at Virginia Tech consider suspect. Wal-Mart being at the top of their list of hated American institutions.
Town officials found "Wal-Mart" written on a site plan document.
By Tonia Moxley, The Roanoke Times
It has been sitting on the Blacksburg town government's Web site all along: Apparent confirmation that Fairmount Properties of Ohio plans to build a Wal-Mart Supercenter along South Main Street.
There, in the corner of a site plan document, reads: "Wal-Mart summary."
For months, opponents have suspected that a 186,000-square-foot retail store shown on site plans submitted to the town in March is a Wal-Mart. (link)
Anyway, we now know it's a Wal-Mart. Is that a howl of anguish I hear?
