Report: Walmart Is Not Walking the Walk #susty

Then there is the ever-important question of location. There can be no doubt that Walmart, by locating their stores at the outskirts of town, where there is plenty of room available, has contributed more to sprawl than perhaps any other company. This is a triple whammy in that it often destroys pristine habitat, encourages people to move further away from town and thus commute farther to work, which in turn contributes to the decay of pedestrian-friendly urban centers. Americans on average now drive 1000 miles further to stores each year than they did in 1990. Walmart’s stores and parking lots now cover some 60,000 acres in the U.S. alone. A significant number of these have been closed and lay vacant like a giant blight on the land, as the company has opted to build a larger store just a mile or two down the road and has little obligation regarding the abandoned property.
