North Bossier City residents win the war with Walmart.

The retail giant won't be building a store near the intersection of Wemple Rd and Airline Dr.

City leaders say they are not out anything as a result of this change of heart. WalMart will continue to operate the current Airline Drive location.

Walmart sent a letter to Bossier Mayor Lo Walker saying the company will not pursue the development.

The Mayor says there is still the possibility other retailers could be interested in the property since it is zoned for commercial use.
