Can you picture a Wal-Mart mixed in with the cutting-edge vibe of midtown Miami? If things go as planned the big box chain will make its home on five acres south of The Shops at Midtown Miami, but not everyone is happy about it.

Many people who frequent the area have mixed views of Wal-Mart possibly coming to the mixed-use area. Some feel as though the giant retailers will have a negative impact on the smaller businesses, while others believe that local small business owners won’t be affected anymore than they would when the Target was added. It would actually bring more jobs to the area as well as cheaper goods and traffic that all of the businesses can benefit from.
