Rally to Stop Walmart!

No Oak Grove Walmart will hold a rally at the former G.I. Joe's site on Saturday, July 14. Make plans to join us and show Walmart their job-killing race-to-the-bottom business practices are not welcome in our community. Better yet, bring along friends, neighbors and family members. We will have signs to wave or bring your own.

Why Stop Walmart?

Shatters the vision of the McLoughlin Area Plan


Oak Grove citizens spent three years developing a new vision for the future of the community. It was the largest public process in the history of our area. Walmart chooses to ignore it.

Creates a traffic mess and endangers children at the adjacent Concord Elementary School.

Makes an already bad situation into a nightmare. The neighborhood realizes that Walmart's traffic analysis violates common sense.

Walmart is worse for the local economy than an empty building!

Walmart destroys businesses (especially local), lowers wages, mistreats workers, burdens tax payers, and drains money from the local area.
