Metro Council members support petition asking Walmart to reconsider decision

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Some Louisville Metro Council members are encouraging people to sign a petition Monday afternoon to ask Walmart to reconsider building in west Louisville. 

Walmart backed out of a plan to build a store at the location amid a lawsuit filed over the design of the proposed store. Council members Jessica Green (D-1), Mary C. Woolridge (D-3) and Kelly Downard (R-16) support the petition started by Reverend Kirk M. Bush of Harrods Creek Baptist Church.  They will hold a news conference at 3 p.m. at 18th and Broadway. 

The online petition asks Doug McMillon, President and CEO of Walmart Stores, Inc. and Greg Foran, President and CEO of Walmart U.S.  to reconsider the decision regarding the 18th and Broadway location and build a super center to provide west Louisville with quality goods, services and jobs.
