"Wal-Mart site sale recorded"

Regular Palousitics readers knew about this a month ago, but the May 18 Whitman County Gazette finally got around to reporting Wal-Mart's purchase of the land on Bishop Blvd. The Daily News has yet to carry this important story.

Keep checking Palousitics. We'll get the stories on Wal-Mart to you faster than anyone else.
Sale of the proposed Wal-Mart site in Pullman was recorded in a transfer tax affidavit filed in the county treasurer's office. Wal-Mat Stores Inc., of Bentonville, Ark., purchased the site for $1,474,617 according to the the April 13 affidavit. Size of the site was 27.52 acres.

Selling the property located on Bishop Boulevard were Julie Shoemaker, Norman Wilson, Joan Wilson and Daymon Smith.

The proposed Wal-Mart Supercenter project is now before the court on a challenge of the city of Pullman's approval of the project by Palouse (sic) Alliance for Responsible Development.

I noticed last week and confirmed it today with one of Wal-Mart's very happy neighbors that Wal-Mart is starting work on the Pullman project. They aren't moving dirt yet but you can see the tracks of the trucks that are doing preliminary work.
