Walmart Dodging Big Box Laws by Splitting Stores

walmart.jpeIn what’s quickly becoming a cat-and-mouse game, Walmart has found a way to dodge “big box” legislation in Calvert, MD by building two stores side by side. Cheeky.

Walmart officials say there is nothing Calvert can do to prevent construction of the stores. Mark Davis, a lawyer for Charlotte-based Faison Enterprises, which is developing the Walmart site, said the county can regulate only the size and nature of buildings. He said it would be illegal and discriminatory to create laws that regulate the owners of specific buildings.
