Pabst Farms backing off plan for Walmart, Sam's Club stores

MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- The Milwaukee Business Journal says Pabst Farms is backing off on a proposed Walmart and Sam's Club at its stalled Town Centre project.

The developer said in a statement that it will not enter into a land purchase agreement with Walmart stores for the next 12 months.

In 2003, the developer announced plans to create an upscale shopping center.

Then, last May, they announced a plan for the two big box stores to anchor a shopping center.

The plan faced plenty of criticism who said Walmart and Sam's Club hardly fit the definition of an upscale shopping center.
