"Pullman Wal-Mart opposition will not appeal"

PARD will continue to encourage residents to shop locally? So does that mean they will encourage people to shop at our local Wal-Mart they way they have encouraged people to shop at our other local big-box store, Shopko?

PULLMAN - What has been an almost constant fight against a Wal-Mart in Pullman may be over.

Early this month, a Washington Court of Appeals sided with the City of Pullman and the Spokane Valley developer who wants to build a Wal-Mart supercenter on Bishop Boulevard. The Pullman Alliance for Responsible Development, who has fought Wal-Mart in a number of courts, announced they will not appeal that decision to the state Supreme Court.

Through a press release, April Coggins, a member of the Pullman citizens group known as BREO, said it's a day of celebration, and that "The long and pointless legal delays are finally over."

The company plans to break ground on the SuperCenter next year.

PARD said it will continue to encourage residents to shop locally.
