Residents Oppose Megastore

About a hundred residents came out yesterday, mostly to voice opposition to a Sam’s Club in East Dallas. Labeled “East Village,” the development is adjacent to a popular urban-centric area known as West Village.  Organizers expected a presentation by the developers, however the “meet and greet” format in a church basketball court became a more formal presentation when attendees threatened to leave. Newspaper editorials tend to paint the development as a done deal, but a growing number of residents voicing opposition has momentum on the no megastore side.
