Occupy Walmart

Mayor Menino, take note: Scott Van Voorhis writes today that effectively banning Walmart from Boston adds to the hassle of living in the Hub sans automobile: "[C]arless or not, you are then stuck with a limited array of shopping options, of which the lack of a Walmart is just the tip of the iceberg. Major grocery stores are hard to find, and, with a captive audience, the prices are invariably higher at the few that have managed to squeeze their way into the city." [Globe]
