Community members, Chico Planning Commission and Walmart employees all met Oct. 6 at the Chico City Council Chambers to speak about the expansion of the Chico Walmart.

Some of the new improvements will include:

  • 134 parking spaces
  • Gas station
  • Pharmacy
  • Deli
  • Bakery
  • Drive through pick-up services

Community members spoke at the hearing and the majority were for the expansion. Community member Margorie Williams said, “the first time that this didn’t pass I was very disappointed and if it didn’t go through again, I would be highly disappointed again.”

Another member of the community Mah Love was against the Walmart expansion and said, “the word Walmart is physically hurting me so I am going to refer to refer to it as W.”

After numerous community members spoke the Chico Planning Commission decided to pass the issue onto the Chico City Council.
