Love where you live!
Went to City of La Mesa Building Dept. They confirmed Walmart Neighborhood Market going in, funny enough right across from existing Wal-Mart store. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Walmart_Market. Wal-Mart has been stepping up these type of stores often nearby existing super-stores. I think this avoids the huge Big Box Store arguments. They can even throw in a Hispanic or Asian format store in the peoper locations. Very smart!
On the In-N-Out Burger place, city says no way! They say it's going 2 B a Sherman Williams paint store. My informants still say In-N-Out. I think I'm going with city's paint store. Darn it!
