"I have nothing against Wal-Mart in general," said Heights resident Lindsey O'Neal. "It's the fact that in this particular case it is not a good fit for this neighborhood. It would be put on a residential road less than 50 feet from single family homes."
Sharon Hattenbach owns an antique store that sits next to the proposed site. She told Eyewitness News traffic from the store isn't her main concern.
She said, "I grew up here, I haven't left here and I love it here. I just hate to see the really big city move in on us."
A Wal-Mart spokesman said the company is looking at the site, but does not have anything more specific to share at this time.
