    If Wal-Mart moves to Greene, I’d expect them to close the existing Rt 29 store and also open a new Wal-Mart on the south or east side of Charlottesville.

    Greene is too far for most of Cville to drive to but a placing stores on both sides of town will cover the area.

    I hate myself every time I have to shop at Wal-Mart. But I’d expect they would keep their Albemarle Co location even with a store in Greene. I imagine it would kinda be like all the Foodlion’s around the area. Lots of them but they all seem to make money. And I believe they’re already going to put a Super Wal-Mart down in the town of Louisa. So as I said, just like Foodlion.
