I could see not liking wal-mart and not shopping there, but why the hell do some people insist upon legislating them out of existence? That is just plain being an asshole.
The fact that they can't establish any stores in New York says a lot about liberalism IMO. The aristocrat politicians of New York are fine with everybody paying higher prices for merchandise, including those who can't afford it, just so long as their ideology remains intact.
