WalMart Expansion Appeal in Rohnert Park

Wal-Mart Super Center 
Appeals Rohnert Park Rejection
Hearing set for July 29th

People are gathering at the Rohnert Park City Council hearing on Thursday, July 29th (6 pm at City Hall, 130 Avram Ave., Rohnert Park,) to protest Wal-Mart's appeal of the council's previous rejection to build a Super Center in their community.

This expansion of their existing retail store will bring food products to customers. The City Council rejected the expansion on the grounds that it does not fit into their current General Plan. Others reject it because Wal-Mart does not support living wage standards, and this expansion has the potential to harm locally owned grocery businesses.
