Ivy League Students Oppose The Idea Of Walmart Near Campus

Despite the promise Walmart's low prices that would undoubtedly be beneficial to a college student's meager budget, it turns out that students at Harvard and Brown universities wouldn't want the store (NYSE:WMT) to open up shop near their yard. It's not Walmart's reputation that turns these students off, but rather the impact that the mega-retailer would have in their communities. Most said they do not think the lower prices and conveniences of a Walmart would be worth the potential harm to local businesses in their college towns. Story.
