Message from Bel Air South – Walmart is still trying to build a store in Bel Air over public opposition.
Tell Wal-Mart that enough is enough.

This e-mail goes out to 1300 citizens against a Bel Air Wal-Mart.

Folks,

If you saw last Wednesday’s Aegis about Wal-Mart crying “unfair” it was a desperate and feeble attempt to feed the community misinformation about the benefits of a new store.

Here is the link if you have not seen it.

We need to respond to Wal-Mart and let them know that we are as resolute as ever, “NO BEL AIR WALMART!”

Please do not hesitate. Send an e-mail to the below Walmart addressees and let them no how you feel.
Write one sentence, a paragraph or a letter….But e-mail them something!

Here is who we will be contacting:

Doug McMillon – President & CEO
Greg Foran – President & CEO, Walmart USA
Pam Kohn – Exec VP Walmart Realty
Nina Albert- Director of Public Affairs
Bill Wertz – Public Relations

Copy and Paste these addressees into your e-mail:
Doug.McMillon; Greg.Foran; Pam.Kohn; Nina.Albert; William.Wertz

Here are some writing points that you can incorporate into your e-mail if you choose. Remember one sentence is better than nothing.

Bullets for writing to Wal-Mart

  • Location is not suited for big box store
  • Additional traffic will add to congestion and unsafe roads
  • Safety of pedestrians and drivers
  • Safety of school children from nearby schools
  • Already have 3 stores within 10 miles or less
  • Road improvements are not feasible
  • Store will adversely affect the public health, safety, and general welfare of the community
  • Sam Walton’s policy was “We will never build where we are not wanted.”

Send us an e-mail letting us know if you wrote to Wal-Mart so we can track our impact.

Still in the fight,

Bel Air South Community Foundation
