Wal-Mart to dig its ugly claws into Eureka
The headline in Saturday’s Times-Standard said a “mystery retailer” is readying the space. But a Google search of the architect named in the article, Shade O’Quinn, shows he’s Wal-Mart’s guy.
Eureka voters defeated Wal-Mart’s aggressive bid to build on the Balloon Track in 1999. Since then the sweat shop loving, union busting, main street crushing big box has been looking for other ways to infest our Victorian Seaport. Skating into an empty space in the mall appears to be the ticket.
