Walmart At 69th Street & Cliff Avenue

February 10, 2012, 5:00 PM by Don Jorgensen

Walmart At 69th Street & Cliff Avenue
SIOUX FALLS, SD - Walmart is proposing to build its third store in Sioux Falls.

Currently, there is one on the city's west side just off of Louise Avenue. A second Walmart was built on the east side on Arrowhead Parkway. Now, the company wants to build on an empty field in southern Sioux Falls at 69th Street and Cliff Avenue, which is in a residential neighborhood. 

Rose Mutschelknaus has lived in a nearby town home for 16 years. She received a letter this week notifying her of an upcoming informational meeting on the proposed Walmart. 

"I guess I would like it because it would be handy to have a place like that here.  We don't have any hardware stores or any type of thing in this area," Mutschelknaus said. 

"Hmm, that's really an interesting question because as I told you, I'm a stock trader and I have followed that stock for years and know quite a bit about the company. I think there's lots of positives, but then it's always not in my backyard, right," Ellen Jansen-Soret said.

Other neighbors we talked with like shopping at Walmart. 

"Good deals and stuff and the other Walmart is way over there, but if it was right there, it would be real nice," Catherine Heyer said.

But even though all three like the idea of having a Walmart just across the street, they do have some concerns.

"The corner here is sometimes difficult to get onto Cliff; it depends on what they do with the street," Mutschelknaus said.

Others think it should be built aesthetically pleasing, so it conforms to the neighborhood, 

"A lot of houses here are built in the craftsman style so require them to build it in the craftsman style.  If they want to be a part of an upscale neighborhood, then puts some demands on it," Jansen-Soret said.

The informational meeting is next Thursday at 6:30 p.m. at CJ Callaways. Walmart representatives will be available to discuss the project and answer questions.
