Dear Valued Wal-Mart CustomerAnd I, along with most everyone else that I know, will also look forward to that grand opening.
As you have probably heard, the Superior Court Judge's decision to review the Hearing Examiner's decision which would allow us to build a Wal-Mart Supercenter in Pullman has been postponed.
We wanted to let you know why we believe this is a good decision, and that we expect the final decision by the Superior Court will be that much stronger in the face of the efforts of a small minority to stop the Supercenter from being built.
When the Judge reviewed the appeal of the Hearing Examiner's decision, he decided that there should be more detail in the examiner's explanation. This was not a rejection of the decision, but clearly an effort to make certain that whatever he decided, his ruling would be able to withstand additional appeals and not waste any more time.
So we are satisfied with the Judge's request of the Hearing Examiner to re-issue his decision with more detailed information, and believe that he will see the logic and wisdom in these findings.
And we expect to begin construction soon after the final appeal has been satisfied in the months ahead.
Thanks again to all of you who have written letters to the editor, attended hearings, testified in support, or have just made it clear to your friends and neighbors that you are a part of the majority of the greater Pullman community that supports the proposed Wal-Mart Supercenter.
We look forward to seeing you at our grand opening next year.
