No Race Track, So Here's Wal-mart

Just as I predicted in previous posts, now that the Racetrack in Arlington/Marysville has been shot down, here comes the first of what is going to be a few big box stores. I hope those people who complained of the traffic a race track would bring on those few weekends a year there are big races are happy now that they will have thousands of exta vehicles a day travelling those roads!

SMOKEY POINT - Wal-Mart confirmed Monday that it wants to place one of its supercenter stores along 172nd Street NE, ending weeks of local speculation about who was behind plans submitted to the city last month.
The store, planned for a 25-acre site along the south side of the street, would be just under 204,000 square feet.
