It's hard to conceive of a win-win with Walmart because there are so many people with a psychological need to hate something, and hating Walmart is just so darned politically correct.

People can't openly hate the scapegoats of yore (Catholics, Jews, Blacks) without coming off as ignorant yahoos. But it's open season on Walmart.

Cosentino's has lower prices than Walmart anyway

The problem with this Walmart isn't the fact that it's a walmart, but 1) the City seems to make special accomodations in zoning that goes against their stated goals for the area in favor of Walmart over other businesses; and 2) is proposed to be located in an inappropriate spot. The traffic at that location is already a mess, and a dangerous intersection, and Walmart projects to add 10,000 additional cars per day over a single intersection, as there are no significant secondary outlets for traffic to exit.
