Walmart survey says store wantedBreaking News
Walmart representatives announced Monday that based on results of a recent survey, a new Walmart Supercenter will be welcomed by a majority of Orange County residents. Last month’s survey, conducted by an independent market research firm, questioned 300 registered voters in Orange County about shopping preferences and related issues.
Plans to build the 143,000-square-foot supercenter on a 19-acre portion of a larger property-already zoned for commercial use-were announced last year. Since plans for the project were made public, there has been an almost-constant discussion between those who support the project for the economic benefits it could offer Orange, and those who oppose it because of the proximity to important sites in American culture and history.
Walmart contracted with Voter Consumer Research in January to conduct a public opinion survey of registered voters in Orange, and results were significant: 61 percent of local registered voters said they supported a new Walmart at the proposed site on the north side of the Route 3 and Route 20 intersection. And further, Walmart representatives said, according to their results, 74 percent of those surveyed said Orange County lacked shopping options.
