No Wal-Mart for East Albany

December 13, 2005

Albany -- Hurricanes Katrina and Rita might stop or slow Wal-Mart from building in East Albany.

Nearly 90 Wal-mart stores were damaged or destroyed in the hurricanes this fall. The superstore is spending big bucks to get those stores rebuilt and open, possibly slowing expansion of other stores.

But, the Chamber of Commerce President says Wal-mart is still looking at several sites in east Albany, but he's not exactly sure where, when or if the store will be built.
