Wal-Mart Stores Inc. (NYSE: WMT) does not have a presence in Boulder. The Bentonville, Arkansas-based company has long tried to gain a foothold in Boulder, including a 2002 attempt to build a Supercenter at what was then Crossroads Mall. The company faced a protracted campaign from anti-Walmart advocates, including the Boulder Independent Business Alliance, according to Boulder County Business Report coverage from that time.
