Wal-Mart recently made a decision not to build one of its super centers in West Louisville, which is one of the most socioeconomically-challenged urban communities in the state of Kentucky.

To convince the company to reconsider, West Louisville advocates have launched a petition with hopes of persuading the nation’s largest retailer to build a signature super center on the corner of 18th Street and Broadway, which has been a vacant lot for more than a decade after Phillip Morris relocated its operation to other cities.

The goal of the advocates is to have 30,000 people sign the petition that will be shared with the president and CEO of Wal-Mart to convince them that the residents of West Louisville deserve access to fresh, affordable food and quality products.
