Discount retailer Wal-Mart is reportedly looking for space in Manhattan. According to the Post, the chain passed on a proposal by the Related Companies for a two-level store of 57,000 square feet where Virgin Megastore and Circuit City are closing in Union Square, although a Wal-Mart spokesperson said the space was never under consideration. Wal-Mart’s real estate scouts have also been looking around near 620 Sixth Avenue at 18th Street sources said. The company has no stores in New York City.
