The store was originally scheduled to open by mid-2013, and is now looking at a mid-2014 opening date, according to Galt City Manager Jason Behrmann.

    I also notice that Walmart hasn't turned over any ground as of yet on their Lodi super store yet either? What seems to be the problem with the delays? They were to have supposedly started their project in March and yet no one from the dysfunctional Lodi management team seems to know why. Could there be some major changes to the projects that either no one wants to talk about or are not disclosing? I see that the city of Lodi is also bargaining with Walmart, I think, on some property at or near the White Slough sewage facility in the area of I-5 and north Stockton/Lodi indicating, in my opinion, that their plans could change any day with the changing economy. Does this newspaper (?) have any reporters/owners/editors capable of researching these issues and coming up with some solid facts and not half truths or guesses and then having the gumption to actually print the real facts?
