A group of people against Walmart bringing a store to Chicago's Lakeview neighborhood held a protest Thursday morning.

Walmart has said it would like to set up a smaller "neighborhood market" store near the intersection of Broadway and Surf.

The proposed 30,000-square-foot store would primarily sell groceries. But neighborhood residents are worried the store would force mom-and-pop shops out of business and cause congestion.
