DECATUR, Ga. -- First built 60 years ago, DeKalb County's Suburban Plaza Shopping Center has seen tougher times the past few years.
Now, the family that first developed and still owns it has the chance for a major facelift.
Selig Enterprises wants to put in a Walmart as a major anchor store.
It would mean a huge renovation and, to some who live in the area, a major pain.
They fear it will hurt smaller area businesses and swamp already crowded nearby roads.
"We can barely get out of this island; it has to be Church Street or Scott Boulevard, for most of us anyway," said neighbor Doris Williams.
It's an even bigger concern for neighbor Nikki Veysoglu, whose daughter has to make frequent trips to nearby hospitals, often in an ambulance.
"Just a couple weeks ago, trying to get her to the hospital took us 7.5 minutes to make a left turn on North Decatur Road to go to Emory."
