Survey: Majority of New Yorkers would shop at Walmart

BY CSA STAFF

New York City — A new poll released Friday finds that New Yorkers would shop at Walmart if one opened in the city. According to the Quinnipiac University poll, 68% of New Yorkers said that if it were convenient for them, they would shop at Walmart. That is compared with 29% who said they would not.

Nearly identical numbers of people say the chain’s lower prices would eat into small business sales.

Of those polled, 57% say they think elected officials should allow Walmart to move into the city, while 36% do not.

The new Quinnipiac poll surveyed about 1,100 registered voters between March 8-14 and has a margin of error of +/- 2.9 percentage points.
