Boston Continues Fight Against Walmart

Market
Some people really hate low, low prices:

Walmart faces an uphill battle to build a grocery store in Boston as community groups, shop owners and residents across the city vow to fight the giant retailer, saying it would force out small businesses and bring in low-wage jobs.

“A giant like Walmart would be devastating to small businesses,” said Marvin Gilmore, president of the Community Development Corp. of Boston, which includes Roxbury, where Walmart unsuccessfully tried to build a grocery store. “They are too big. The community does not need a Walmart.”
