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: Watching movies by myself

    Summary:  I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff. I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the place to myself.

    No cartoons on racism

    As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
