Wimpy Wal-Mart

Frowny FaceSo all we have to show for that epic 2006 battle over Wal-Mart that ended with the mayor accusing those in favor of higher wages of being racists is . . . one lousy store on the West Side?

A proposed Wal-Mart supercenter in Chatham on the South Side always had some difficult obstacles to overcome, but Wal-Mart’s super expansion into the city appears seriously stalled.

The Tribune editorial page today argues that the city and the Chatham developers should rescind their promise to not bring a Wal-Mart to 83rd and Stewart.

But even a measly second store hardly seems a good return on the company’s investment so far.
