Until now, there hasn’t been anywhere to put a Wal-Mart in Huntersville, Cornelius and, heaven forbid, Davidson. That’s largely because, until now, there hasn’t been a suitable location that would dissuade citizens from raising the requisite ruckus every time the word Wal-Mart is mentioned here.
But the planned new Wal-Mart on the southern edge of the mega transit-oriented, mixed-use Bryton is located well away from any current residential neighborhoods and will be a stone’s through from the final leg of I-485. In short, it seems like an ideal location. And Wal-Mart officials, it’s been said, have been very accommodating in meeting the town’s rather stringent architectural standards.
No community complaints and no significant push-back from Wal-Mart certainly makes it appear that the future of commercial development around these parts is Bryton-ing.
