    I live about a mile away from the new stadium in Arlington.... I see it every time I go to get groceries at the Walmart directly across from it....

    I hate seeing this generic Walmart parked directly in front of this world-class venue!! It's not even a very nice Walmart!! Actually, it's one of the more "ghetto" Walmarts I've seen...

    I shutter at the thought of seeing an overhead shot of this stadium... Lets just hope that they dont name it Walmart Stadium.....

    It's so close, you could probably get your snacks there at halftime....

    Also, how is Walmart going to keep everybody from filling their massive parking lot every other Sunday? It beats paying $20 to park a mile away....

    I hate the Walmart being there!!! :banghead: It just seems so generic and tacky!

    Am I the only person bothered by this???

    Something tells me you'd look great in a blue vest.

    I like Wal-Mart. They will probably either give the current one a face-lift or build a Super Store nearby when the new stadium gets going.

    Remember, Wal-Mart was operational (out of tents and temporary structures) in ALabama, Mississippi and parts of Louisiana within hours of the passage of Katrina through the area. FEMA was waaaay behind.

    If you ever have a disaster in your area, I'll bet Wal-Mart will be helping out long before anyone else is, especailly the Government...

    There are much worst looking buildings in the area than Wal Mart. The area along Collins with the old Days Inn and Tommy Tech. Then the sleazy motels and the old Eastern Star retirement home along Division St.

    I doubt it. It's a super store that is about 2 years old and is red brick like the Rangers ballpark.

    But, see...all those place will eventually become renovated at some point in time because of all the money that will come into the economy in that area.

    It will just take time before the area and land around that stadium will appreciate in value and all those awful looking buildings or places will be upgraded to reflect the surroundings.

    It's basic micro-economics.

    That Walmart bothers me as well. It's a total eyesore when compared with the stadium. Knock it down.

    I'm sure WalMart will just give up and allow it for the sake of the Cowboys. ;)

    Walmart is actually going to be very convenient for tailgating fans. Run out of beer? Go to Walmart. Need more meat for the pit? Go to Walmart. And then because it's so close, you just KNOW it's going to have a gang of Cowboys stuff.

    Plus they're allowing the Cowboys to use part of their space for parking.

    Like others have said, there are worse places surrounding the stadium than the Walmart.

    Walmart is great.

    If you like to buy products made in China.

    Come on folks. Buy American.

    I personally like the Wal-Mart being there. As long as it has meat and beer then I see no reason to get rid of it (like if they would be willing to). Walk across and restock without having to drive somewhere. Sounds good.

    :clap: :clap2: :worthy2:

    Not to highjack this thread but I made my neighbor see red the other day.

    He was complaining about this and that (as usual) when he started talking about the economy, the government, the Dow, and everything else. I asked "Why are you complaining, don't you have two Hondas in your driveway??" The look on his face was priceless. :D

    They have done away with the vests, haha.

    That wal-mart is going to make loads of money if it sticks around.

    I have a feeling that Wally World and the other surrounding business won't stay in their current shape too long after the stadium is complete...
