Walmart Opens Neighborhood Market in Levittown
New York's first Walmart Neighborhood Market in Levittown is now standing where a unionized Waldbaum's once stood, but was forced to close during the A&P bankruptcy last year.
The store is across the street from a UFCW Local 1500 King Kullen and a half-mile away from UFCW Local 1500 Pathmark. As a former RWDSU/UFCW Local 338 store, Local 338's appearance at the store has become regular. We joined with our brothers and sisters to educate the community about Walmart, and give Walmart workers a voice. Our community needs jobs, yes, but not just ANY job.
