Report: Walmart Takes Swing At Possible Spot Near Citi Field
Its plans to open up shop in Brooklyn have faced stiff opposition, but that's reportedly not stopping Walmart from hoping for a location near Citi Field.
According to the Daily News, the big box retailer is lobbying lawmakers to set up shop in the retail and entertainment complex that's planned as a central part of the area's redevelopment.
Walmart's other proposed site in East New York is on a site being developed by Related companies, which is also co-developing the site at Willets Point.
Most elected officials oppose Walmart's proposed store, citing the company's labor practices.
