LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) — A rally is scheduled Monday but instead of protesting development, residents are expected to ask Wal-Mart to set up shop where they live.

However, not everyone is excited about the possibility of the “big box” store which would take over the old Philip Morris plant site in West Louisville.

Some business owners said they believe it may force smaller firms out of business.

Members of the King Solomon Missionary Baptist Church and the Justice Resource Center are hosting the march and rally set to begin at 10 a.m. at Dixie Hwy. and Broadway St.

WHAS11′s Johnny Archer has more from residents and business owners in the video above.
