1.Why did Wal-Mart give up the fight to build near the historic site? Do you believe those opposing the construction of the center had a solid foundation and did they considered the benefits versus the risks of not allowing the center to be built? Did anyone considered the possibility of building the center so that it blended with the historical nature of the area?
2. Do you think that Wal-Mart had a right to build on a site that was near an official historic site and that already had other retail stores? Explain.
