Waukesha Wants Wal-Mart To Introduce its "Louvre" Model

Waukesha city officials want a Wal-Mart for the ages.

They tell store officials this, according to the Journal Sentinel, not The Onion:

"Beautiful buildings add value to a city," Ald. Joan Francoeur said. "I want people to look at the Wal-Mart picture in Waukesha and say, 'That's what I want.' "

"Suggestions included a water theme at the store, possible use of Lannon stone and surrounding sections of the property with wrought iron fencing."

If they're not careful, these architectural dreamers will drive Wal-Mart across the road into the Town of Waukesha, where they don't have those pesky design standards.

Yes, I want my Wal-Mart to look nice, but if they do make it look nice, I trust it won't increase the cost of my Pepsi, Fiery-Hot Cheetos or my diabetes medication?
