Should Walmart be on UGA's campus?

January 16, 2013

Walmart is opening it's smallest store in the US on Georgia Tech's campus.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the Walmart will be 2,500 square feet. On average, Walmarts in a neighborhood market are around 40,000 square feet with Express Walmart stores at 15,000.

The store will offer limited grocery, pharmacy, health and beauty aids and general merchandise.  

Last year's plan of building a 95,000 square foot Walmart in downtown Athens was heavily opposed, but would a miniature Walmart on UGA's campus be a better option?

 

Would you be in favor of a miniature Walmart on campus?

Do you think there would be the same amount of opposition as the proposed Walmart last year?

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

    Winter storm drama

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
