Lacey History Month – Wal-Mart

June 15th, 2015 by Ken

June is Lacey History Month.   In keeping with that theme we’re going to point out significant events in the city’s history.

In December 2002, the Lacey Planning Commission voted 4-3 to allow construction of a Wal-Mart store on the Yelm Highway.   In April 2003, the Lacey City Council voted 5-2 against the store’s construction.

(Later the council voted to approve the store’s construction as part of a larger development and this year the new Wal-Mart opened it’s doors to customers.)
