Both the Brooklyn Paper and the Post have stories about how Walmart might be interested in leasing a big property on Gravesend Bay. The broker marketing the site, which is on Shore Parkway off of 24th Avenue, says Walmart has expressed interest in it. The parcels in question are adjacent to a property where developer Joe Sitt wants to build a big retail complex that includes a BJ’s and in an area where there are already large chain stores like a Kohl’s and Best Buy. The Post quotes Councilmember Domenic Recchia Jr. as saying that a Walmart wouldn’t work on the site because it’s not big enough and it would overwhelm the area with traffic. Until now, the buzz about Walmart making an entry into Brooklyn has centered on the company opening a location at the Gateway shopping center in East New York.
