Bloomberg Won’t Fight Against Wal-Mart In NYC

4

walmartThe world’s largest retailer may finally find a home in NYC. Unions, smaller retailers and some community groups are dead set against Wal-Marts opening within the five boroughs, but Mayor¬†Bloomberg said the City will not stand in the way.

“If you would do surveys in, for example, southeast Queens, people are going to Nassau County to shop at Wal-Mart. “If you do surveys in Lower Manhattan, they’re driving over to New Jersey,” Bloomberg said.

Bloomberg said Wal-Mart has a legal right to open in the Big Apple, adding that the company provides a large number of entry-level jobs.
