Walmart sends out mailer to Sioux Falls southwest side

Posted: Updated:

If you live in southwest Sioux Falls, you likely received a mailer. It's from Walmart, and it talks about the positive impact the retailer has on the community.

Walmart wants to build at 85th Street and Minnesota Avenue, and its proposal has been met with opposition. The "Save Our Neighborhood" group has been particularly vocal about the commercial development in that area.

Considering the Sioux Falls City Council has yet to vote on the zoning, Councilor Greg Jamison, who lives in southwest Sioux Falls, was surprised by the mailer.

"I've never received a mailer like this for any other business that's been proposed to move into our community, so it's a little odd that way," said Jamison. "But, what's funny about this is they're sending this out to the neighborhood and the public, and I'm the guy that's going to vote on it. So it's almost like they're trying to influence the public to get them to influence me and my vote."

The proposed Walmart on the city's north side was not mentioned in the mailer.
