Most of the shoppers will likely be from the immediate area...like me!

No, they won't. A store that large won't survive on just a local trade area, no matter how walkable or affluent it is. WalMart plans on drawing customers in from a much larger area for each of these stores. Trust me.

I would disagree with Dan's characteristics of the 6 stores. He says 3 are urban. Only two meet that qualification in my eye, the two that are mixed use (Fort Totten and Gonzaga).

Three are single-use with structured parking (Georgia Ave, Capitol Heights, and Skyland), and one is a strip mall (New York Ave). The Capitol Heights location is also a strip mall, but appears to at least have one level of underground parking.
