Walmart is reportedly eyeing a site in the Willets Point redevelopment near Citi Field to construct a mega store, the Daily News reports.
Elected officials – including state Sen. Toby Stavisky, D-Flushing - have mostly blasted the decision to build a Walmart store in Queens due to the retailer’s past labor practices and Brooklyn leaders have similarly to East New York and other sites in that borough.
But Councilman Dan Halloran, R-Whitestone, told the News that Walmart could be a welcome addition to Queens because it offers below-retail prices.
