Big box retail is typically thought of, and built in, the context of suburbia or rural communities. But increasingly this retail model is being applied to urban areas. Washington, D.C. has retailers such as Target, Best Buy and Home Depot and is considering four Wal-Mart stores in various parts of the city.  Join expert panelists for a discussion about how this retail model is affecting D.C.’s planning, land use, transportation, and economy.
