Petition Launched Against Rumored Store

December 3, 2013
By

Rumors have been circulating throughout the area regarding the possibility of Walmart coming to Batesville, and it has sparked an online petition.

The petition titled, “We are AGAINST a Wal-Mart Store in Batesville, IN,” was written by an anonymous resident who claimed the proposed location is on S.R. 46 just east of the Batesville Primary School.

The author addressed the petition for two Batesville officials and received 490 signatures as of Tuesday at 12:00 p.m.

No word on the legitimacy of the rumors. WRBI is waiting on a confirmation or denial from city officials as well as corporate representatives from Walmart.

We are on the story and will keep you up-to-date on the latest developments.
