Dan, excellent analysis of the sites. I can see how people might think that Wal-Mart is experimenting here. WalMart has a tendency to abandon some stores after as little as six months, I think this over-saturation may be to see which styles (in varying degrees of urban-ness, however you define it) work in different environs.

Additionally, DC is a good place to do that. DC has a diverse array of urban forms... ironically that diversity exists because of how the city is segregated in some ways.

My guess is that the Fort Totten store will close; either the Gateway or the NY Av store will close and the other will exist largely on clientele driving in from Maryland; The Georgia Av store will be repurposed after a little longer, and the Skyland and Gonzaga stores will do the best
