Walmart considers move into Burbank shopping mall

July 24, 2011 |  6:11 pm

As Walmart considers whether to move a store into a Burbank shopping mall, the company has assured Burbank city officials that it will seek public input on amenities and store hours, should they choose to move in.

Walmart spokesman Steven Restivo said last week that the company has experience in hosting forums in cities where the mega-retailer has opened. In Washington, D.C., where Walmart is scheduled to open four stores, about 60 community meetings have been held during the past several months, he added.

“We plan to engage the community to listen to concerns, answer questions and share information about the different formats we have at Walmart,” Restivo told the Glendale News-Press.

Walmart executives are still evaluating what to do with the 12-acre site where the Great Indoors is set to close at the end of the month. Walmart, which purchased the property last month, could act as a landlord and lease it to another retailer.
