Weston Ranch gets a "mini" Wal-mart

At least they finally have some shopping in Weston Ranch.

Thank goodness they didn't build that Wal-Mart 101,000 square feet. It would be terrible if people had more selection of products in the store, more room in the aisles, or a few more cash registers to shorten check-out lines.

When it comes to big-box bans, it seems that the real issues that concern folks have nothing to do with the size of the store. It is better for policy to address those issues directly (whether they are aesthetic, labor, environmental, etc.). This also exposes whether proponents motives are protection from competition rather than protecting citizens from harm.
