Hinton Makes Statement on Shallowford Road Wal-Mart Closure, Food Deserts

(Chattanooga, TN) - Candidate for Chattanooga Mayor, Wade Hinton, released a statement on the closure of the Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market at Shallowford Road and North Moore Road.



"Yesterday, we were saddened to learn Walmart plans to close its Neighborhood Market located on Shallowford Road. In addition to the potential loss of jobs for hardworking Chattanoogans, this closure creates a food desert for some residents living in the Brainerd community and beyond.
I know how vital it is to have access to fresh, healthy, and affordable food options. It helps our neighborhoods and communities thrive - not just survive.
Later this morning, I will reach out to the current administration for an update on this valuable community resource."
