Wal-Mart representativees told Patch they do have interest in the property. Wal-Mart spokesman Steven Restivo had the following statement on the Lake Avenue location:
"While we don’t have any new sites to announce in Altadena, we’re always evaluating new opportunities all across Southern California to be closer to our customers.
In a follow-up email Restivo said that the Lake Avenue property is a "site we were looking at in an effort to be closer to our customers and part of the solution when it comes to things like more affordable groceries."
With Wal-Mart's confirmed interest in the property we want to know what you think. For those unhappy about the first location on Lincoln which is already set to open, should both locations be opposed? Are there any readers who feel one Wal-Mart is OK, but two is too many? Does Wal-Mart's interest in the second location change anyone's feelings about the original location?
