Bye Bye Walmart - Camillus, you can have her.

Inspired to post again at Geddesblog, here is a few farewell shots of the old Walmart in Fairmount:





I can't wait for Target, hopefully the building that they put in is reminiscent of their Fayetteville store, and looks less "big-boxish".

...though the environmentalist in me wonders why the heck they couldn't have retrofitted the Walmart to suit their needs and just put a new facade on the building. Seems like a tremendous waste of time, energy and materials...

It could be that the building was considered to be aging. I'm not sure how long the useful life of these huge cinderblockeramas really are (certainly it didn't seem to take them much effort to knock THIS one down). And this Wal-Mart, if you recall, actually began its life as a Caldor.
