Site Soliciting Bids for Work on Altadena Walmart Express Market

A construction site has a listing up for a bid for construction work on a "Altadena Wal-Mart Neighborhood Mkt"

We wrote at the vacant supermarket site at the intersection of Lincoln and Figueroa.

While we have been unable to confirm whether or not a deal is in place between Wal-Mart and the property owners, the a website advertising chances to bid on local construction jobs has listed the "Altadena Wal-Mart Neighorhood Mkt" as a job to bid on.

The listing does not have an address attached to it - the site, McGraw Hill Construction Dodge Lead Center, charges $59 to view the specific details of the request for quotation.  

Gene Detchemendy, the broker representing the property owners, told Patch he has no comment on the bid listing or on negotiations with any company to open a market there.  He did note that he believes a supermarket project can bring 60 new jobs to Altadena.

The Walmart Public Affairs Department did not return calls requesting comment for this story.

Update 9:30 a.m: Tim Rutt over at the Altadenablog has some more of the documents published on his site, which list the address of the vacant lot at Lincoln and Figueroa as the site of the project.

Gary- there is a message I intend to send through my shopping practices at wal mart. It isnt that I or other Altadenans are so desperate that we will suffer through any piece of sh*t multinational corproatists want to shove down our throats

Altadena Resident, there are four different businesses in the Webster's complex, did you know that? Webster's Liquor, Webster's Community Pharmacy, Webster's Fine Stationers and the Dazee Thrift Shop. The Webster family's corporation, with Bill Webster as CEO, owns the Liquor store and Post Office Substation, Mike and Meredith Miller are the owners of the Pharmacy, the Dazee Thrift Shop is owned and operated by the PEO (Philanthropic Educational Organization), and Webster's Fine Stationers is owned by Scott and I as the only 3rd generation Webster-owned store. Five years ago, Scott and I chose to retain the beautiful script Webster's logo of the 1960s, signifying the ties to our roots and vision for the future. We are building and reinforcing our brand with each customer we serve.

Yes,Walmart will put the small business owners out of business,the Super KingMarket,Record Shop and all other business in the area. Walmart is a great place to shop but do we really need a large department store in this community?
