WAL-MART’S APPEAL: Wal-Mart isn’t giving up on its bid to open an urban Supercenter near downtown Dallas. The world’s largest company was dealt a humbling setback on June 6 when the Dallas Plan Commission denied the $218 billion retailer a zoning change required before the radical two-story Supercenter can be built near Love Field Airport in the trendy Oak Lawn neighborhood. On Tuesday, a Wal-Mart spokeswoman said the chain has appealed the commission’s ruling and plans to take the matter before the Dallas City Council for a deciding vote sometime this fall, though the date hasn’t been confirmed. Opposing neighborhood groupsare expected to be out in force at the meeting.
