Walmart Grocery Stores Coming to MA

2/17/2009 12:01:00 AM
Have you been in a Walmart lately? Living downtown, it's a little tough to get to one. The only one I know of is the one on Route 9 just past the Natick Mall. I was there in early January and it's pretty amazing how cheap they can sell their products there. During times like these, I can see why Walmart and McDonald's are the only ones still holding strong. Although, I've found that McDonald's really isn't that cheap anymore.

Wal-Mart Stores Inc., the nation's largest grocer, is making an aggressive push across Massachusetts to double its supermarket business over the next year. The effort to woo more bargain-conscious Bay Staters includes the construction of a new supercenter in Worcester and the addition of markets to stores in Halifax, Hudson, Oxford, Salem, Springfield, and Swansea. A grocery addition already under construction at Wal-Mart's North Attleborough location is expected to be completed this fall.

I guess that's good news for the folks living in the suburbs, but it won't really help anyone living downtown. I guess I'll just have to stick with my bimonthly Costco runs. That being said, Downtown Crossing could really use a grocery store. I wish someone would take that old Barnes & Nobles that closed down a few years ago and turn it into a small grocery store. That'd be awesome.

    Oh man, now I'm going to be desperately wishing for that. Sigh.
