SAN DIEGO — Wal-Mart says it wants to build a dozen new stores in San Diego over the next five years.
The company's announcement Thursday comes as the City Council prepares to consider repealing an ordinance that requires economic impact reports from developers of big box superstores.
The company's vice president of public affairs Maggie Sans told City News Service that no building sites had been identified, but it was Wal-Mart's intent to have stores across the city.
Sans says the proposed stores would range from smaller neighborhood markets of 30,000 square feet to superstores.
The City Council is scheduled to consider repealing the ordinance on Tuesday.
