A Wal-mart closure has a big effect on a young person living in East Oakland, leaving her without a place to get many of the basics she relies on. “In my neighborhood, it’s easier to buy tobacco and alcohol than a pencil. Like much of the Bay Area, my neighborhood is changing quickly. Rent is getting higher. And a big box store leaving is a big deal.” Hear the story on Youth Radio.

call it a hunch, but i have a feeling that this store is closing
