Poll: Would You Shop at a Walmart Grocery Store in Altadena?

We want to know whether you would be willing to give Walmart a chance if it opened a grocery store in town.

On Wednesday .

Currently, there is no indication that there is a deal in place to open a Walmart location at the vacant supermarket location at Lincoln and Figueroa (and the land owner's representative, in fact, says there is no deal with anyone right now) but considering the contact with the county, it is a definite possibility.

So we want to ask you reader, would you shop at the Walmart if it were to open? Bear in mind, it would be a smaller store, focused on groceries rather than the standard Walmart.

Please tell us where you stand in the poll below, and feel free to leave any additional thoughts in the comments section.

Erick do you know of any Walmart employees? Do you really think Walmart pays less then the fast food chains in our area. The wonderful thing about America is that if you dont like the pay you dont have to work there.Is everyone forgetting the amount of drug dealer we have in Altadena,they are everywhere . Unfortunely what I have seen there are quit a few mom and pop shops that allow drug dealers to hang around their stores I wont go in our allow my family to.You know they wont be hanging around Walmart looking cool. Please rethink this. We need to do something to clean up our town. from liquor stores and drug dealers, Walmart might just be the answer.

Trader Joes would be great I shop there also. As Altadena brings in new home owners and new taxes I am hopeful the drug dealers that either work and or live here will leave.We all know Trader Joe's is not going to come to Altadena as long as they are at every corner. Lets try and clean that up. and maybe we can get a TJ

Where are these great little stores everyone is talking about? Bought a home in Altadena and have not seen one I would go to. I am reading a lot about how small town like Altadena is but NO ONE is saying anything about the homeless and the drugs......That is a BIG problem here. Instead of worrying about Walmart what about address that.

;) Thank you for voicing that I whole heartily agree. I have a nice house in Altadena and my neighborhood is moving up slowly,it seem it is not the older home owners but their children and momma's daddys that are a big problem. They all need jobs and not selling drugs. The gangster and drug dealers are bringing out home values down .Wlatmart is a good thing they wont allow an unsafe environment around their store. our property value down and creating a unsafe environment for our families.

Terry, I agree wholeheartedly. Sure I don't want the liquor store, but a Corporate chain will leave no room for small shops that are struggling and may even be gaining some head-way.
