Great a Wal-Mart Supercenter for Indian Trail?

If you drive down Hwy. 74 now at the corner of Unionville-Indian Trail road they are building a Wal-Mart Supercenter there. Why? They have one 5 miles east down the road in Monroe, then they have one like 7 miles west in Charlotte. Does this not seem like a big waste of land. Wal-Mart Supercenters pop-up all over Charlotte. And Super Targets Pop-up all over Raleigh. Whats with that?

The only place that I know of in the area that has stopped this kind of development is Huntersville, Cornelius & Davidson. We are Walmart free. Though I admit that I shop at the one on Hwy 16 in Charlotte so I am part of the problem too.

I might be willing to overlook Wal-Mart's questionable policies towards employees and manufacturers, as well as the questionable quality of much (most?) of their merchandise if it weren't for the following:

They consistently build the hugest, most hideous, least inviting commercial buildings in the country, with the most enormous parking lots. They're often separated from the street by a half mile or more, behind all the other strip malls, because there quite simply isn't enough frontage on the street to build their massive parking lots. You can pretty much forget walking to a Super Wal-Mart, anywhere, ever. Their parking lots are always full, and they tend to overwhelm the vicinity with cars driving in and out and circling the (huge) lot for a better space.

Build a Wal-Mart SuperCenter anywhere - no matter how far it is from civilization or how close it is to another SuperCenter, and you can guarantee that people will come out of the woodwork and fill up their parking lot. I guess that's a testiment that their perhaps brutally capitalist business plan works. Their bet that the rest of America doesn't care about the things that I care about has paid off big time.
