1.9 miles

My amateur test indicates it is 1.9 miles from our residence halls to the entrance of the new Walmart, which is set to open July 16. The store is on Hazel Dell Road between 6th and 1th streets. A number of our students now have to go much farther for groceries and a department store and other assorted supplies. A few more places have opened recently on Toronto Road, a coffee shop and restaurant, for example, so maybe we are getting closer to a "campus town" near the campus. Developers will build it when the market says it will be profitable. For UIS students, the sooner the better.
