ChuckD yes the old mansion was a great site to view when you passed Balltown Road but it was also a money pit that nobody was willing to save. There are now multiple retail stores in the place that are giving hundreds of people jobs and the county much needed tax income. After all Schenectady County is owned and operated by liberal tax and spend democrats. We need every dollar possible.

Sorry, that corner is saturated with grocery options: Walmart isn't going to be cheap enough to draw the customers .. it won't offer the variety/volume that the bigger stores do .. Walmart neighborhood markets often have HIGHER prices than a Walmart superstore .. so you may THINK (expect) prices will be cheaper because it's Walmart, but they won't be. You'll see. If you LIKE giving the Walton family your business rather than the Golubs or the Shop (& Price) Rites, then enjoy!

Nope, I give my money to Golub even though they have higher prices because of how much they put back into the community.
