You could say that support for a new Walmart in Tumwater from the Tumwater business community is lukewarm at best. At worst, more than a third of responding businesses say that they are not only against Walmart coming to Tumwater, but they are against Walmart in general.

One bonehead though said that while he was against Walmart personally, that the chamber should support business. I’m going to count on this guy when I open my murder for hire business next to the Dollar Store.
