A planned Walmart grocery store in Panorama City is getting a much different reception than the upcoming retail store in Burbank, where critics contend mom-and-pop shops will be zapped into oblivion by the company's relentless focus on lower-than-your-rivals pricing. Residents of the northeast San Fernando Valley have watched as the recession turned once-thriving commercial hubs into vacant storefronts. The Vannord Center, a 90,000-square-foot-center at the corner of busy Van Nuys Boulevard and Nordhoff Street, has been hit particularly hard with more than half of its 30 tenants closing their doors, according to a recent L.A. Times report . So any concerns that a Walmart store might push out mom-and-pop shops, or threaten union jobs, is being outweighed by the benefits that the national retailer will bring to the struggling center, manager Suzanne Ponder told The Times.

If you think the traffic is bad now on Burbank Boulevard turning onto North Victory Place or crossing over Burbank to get to the Empire Center, just wait until there is a Walmart. But wait, the Burbank Boulevard bridge over the Interstate 5 will be closed for who knows how long. Then try to get to the Empire Center from the south. Count me out. Putting a Walmart in the Empire Center is bad news for everyone except, of course, Walmart. Have you ever been to the store in Panorama City?

It's important for me to give back to the community in which I live," she said.
