Epic 911 Calls At "Inconvenience Store" Known As Wally's Foods...

Photo and blog post by John Hoff

In recent years, North Minneapolis has seen three infamous "inconvenience stores" finally go away: Big Stop, Wafana's, and Uncle Bill's. Now, in emails being fired around on the "WHO mail" listserv and to public officials, the Wally's store at Penn and Golden Valley Road is coming under serious scrutiny.

Wally's...

...has commandeered the sidewalk in front of their store and created a two car parking lot, see photo above. Their list of 911 calls is truly epic, and I'll share that in a moment, but in summary: 662 calls in two years. Very close to one a day. Just a few blocks away from the store, the number of 911 calls drop dramatically.

This level of constant criminal activity is unacceptable, no matter how many hot dogs the owners may donate to National Night Out in Willard Homewood, click here.

Isn't it about time the Minneapolis Police Department bring back "Big Blue," the mobile command center, and park it in front of places like Wally's and Hawthorn (sic) Crossings strip mall? With numbers like this, the tax revenue generated by Wally's will never, ever pay for the city services being sucked down by this location.

Anyway, here is the mega-huge 911 call breakdown for the intersection where Wally's is located:

Looks like you are trying to pin a bunch of traffic citations on a building? Kind of like how guns kill people now stores get traffic tickets?

Pond-dragon said...

To Anon @ 10:04 apparently the activity at/around this location has cost Mpls. Tax payers ~*$250 X 662= $165,500 in police resources over the last 2 years. Not a good use of city resources in many folks opinions. Perhaps viewed as a jobs program in yours.

Your analogy may be a bit off target. It is the bullets that come out of the guns that usually kill people, although you need the gun to deliver the bullet, and you could club someone to death with the gun.

Your point seems to be that Wally's is just a convenient place for the boys in blue to stop folks for traffic violations? Possible, but not probable.

*The $250 is a number we got from the city ~ 5-6 years ago as the average cost to dispatch a squad to a 911 call. It may be closer to $275 or so by now.

MeganG. said...

@Anon 1004pm - that would be a logical argument except for the fact that this is a summary of 911 calls to the area - somebody had to call 911 first - not just standard traffic stops that result in tickets.

There are going to be people who gasp! clutch their pearls and say "How can you blame the owner/building/store/business" and the reality is that this is De Ja Vu. We've been here before THREE TIMES (at least) - an inconvenience store attracts so much crime, litter and headaches that everyone gets fed up, the decent people, the city, the police - all fed up and then something gets done about it. This store owner could have chosen to run a business that is clean orderly and not a leech on our community, like they already do on WBro/Thomas, but instead for whatever reason they didn't feel like working hard enough to respect the community. Now they are on the radar of all kinds of people who want action.

Anonymous said...

Don't you think the people of NoMi need milk, cigarettes and candy? How can you expect to revitalize NoMi by shutting down businesses? People need to shop and work?

And those numbers about how much each 911 call costs is bogus. Cops are going to collect their paycheck whether they're back at the station eating donuts or outside of Wally's harassing black people. One 911 call does not cost the city any more money.

I like shopping at Wally's and I don't want to see another local business driven out so you people can turn NoMi into another uptown.

The Hawthorne Hawkman said...

@ Anon 11:51,

Do people really NEED cigarettes and candy?

One of the arguments for keeping stores like this around is that folks in NoMi have to get on two or sometimes three buses just to get to a grocery store. Even so, why all the 911 calls? Oh, and by the way, if the people who get "harassed" by the police are predominantly black/African-American, and that's indicative of the area in general, then wouldn't it stand to reason that a fair number of 911 calls ORIGINATED from black people?

I'm reminded of a crime and safety meeting in Jordan once where a resident spoke out about the rampant drug dealing and prostitution along Penn Avenue. One of the first people to respond said, essentially, "What do you have against black people?!" even though no mention of skin color was made.

Look at the laundry list of crimes committed here: assault, robbery, narcotics, public intoxication, fights, theft, SHOOTINGS. And tell me, how is it okay to look at that and say, "Well, I'd sure like to call 911, but if I do that, then a (insert ethnicity here) person might be harassed by the cops"?

Matt said...

I don't really understand all of the traffic violations listed either. I've never called 911 for an observed traffic violation, so I'm curious what that's all about.

Also, it looks like the number of calls for the 2 year period is 375, right? I'm not understanding where the 662 number is coming from.

Not trying to be argumentative, just trying to clarify. Thanks.

Matt

Dennis Replies:

Shop and work? it is EXACTLY this type attitude that keeps people locked in poverty. The 600+ 911 calls to this store front isn't for people that are "shopping and working", unless of course you want to expand nefarious activity into the definition of "shopping and working".

Do you have ANY evidence that there were one (or several) paranoid nearby residents that were making all the 911 calls? I didn't think so.

And whether or not you choose to believe it, plice offciers aren't either at a call, or sitting back at the precinct eating donuts. And answering 600+ 911 calls over that period of time DID take poice resources off the streets.

If you need milk, cigarettes, or candy, my advice to you is to find a store that reflects the core elements of what you'd like your neighborhood to be like. Or maybe you already have.

I don't think it's fair to demonize Wally's. They are a great place to grab quick items without spending taxi fare or time on the bus. Heck how much crime happens on the bus and the stops. Maybe we should get rid of those too.

Anonymous said...

I've come to the conclusion (yes it takes me a while to catch-on) that some of the posts are trolls that are looking to get a rise out of others reading this blog. The reason really is irrelevant.

For any objective citizen (of the immediate neighborhood) to make a post similar to what "ANON" 11:51am made, is just ludicrous. To wake-up in the morning and choose to take a position in defense of anythng remotely similar to Wally's in your own neighborhood, would be very similar to waking-up in the morning, wishing you were dead.

Now, if there were bloggers that focused on the "convenience" of this particular "incoinvenience" store, I could see that. But, apparently, if the trolls were "real" bloggers, they would have thought of that.....

Personally, I would love to see the bus stops gone from this location. I would like to see LRT tracks, and a train rolling right on by. Wally's is a scourge, just like all the rest of these little pains in the ass. Buy your groceries at a grocery store. It's the economically intelligent decision. Now make it.

Anonymous said...

I don't have a car. I can't afford bus fare. I have to shop at Wally's sometime. Sorry I can't get to the grocery store as easy as you can. It's easy to tell people what to do when you can afford to drive out to Rainbow whenever you want, but some of us in NoMi are poor and disabled. We need places like Wally's.

TeresaL. said...

It's always interesting to read and hear people defend crime and the businesses that support it. How can anyone actually ENJOY litter, drug dealing, robberies,speeding, etc.? Do you Not have a sister, a brother, a child, or a parent that you care about and would be deeply saddened if they were a victim of crime? Do you NOT have common sense?

I also LAUGH at the people that pull the race card immediately. WE are bad and racist because we don't like our streets littered with garbage and bullets. We are racist because, God forbid, we actually want to go to a store and NOT be approached for money, for drugs, etc. The interesting thing and most obvious to me is that the people that really want positive change for the neighborhood actually want diversity and celebrate it while the people that pull out their race card and wave it are the only ones bringing up RACE and assuming the color of people over a computer.
The days of apologizing for wanting safer streets and better businesses are over. The days of apologizing for investing in a house and making it MY home are over.

Dyna notes:

I don't shop in "inconveience stores". Why? Their prices are outrageous. I have no use for their wares- if you're not a junky you don't need drug paraphenalia. And note that they'll always take EBT cards and sell formula, but their credit card machines are always busted? That's because they're scamming WIC and prefer cash to credit so they don't create a paper trail. I'd suspect the the average "inconvenience store" owners aren't paying income taxes and who knows what other reasons they have for preferring to deal in cash...

BTW, I live equidistant from Holiday and the thankfully closed Wafana'a. I could pretty well judge my neighbors by where they shopped- if they shopped at Wafana's the were usually up to no good. If I saw them coming home with bags from Holiday or Cub there was a chance they were decent folks.

Anonymous said...

The state of Minnesota endorses this fine establishment as a provider of WIC.

Wally's Foods is serving a vital need in a community lacking in places to obtain food without taking transportation.

Ranty said...

Hey, it would be awesome to have little independent greengrocers here and there throughout the city, ala NYC or various European cities. However that is not what Wally's is.

"Grab a few items[?]"

Seriously?

And what sort of items would those be??? Swisher sweets? Rolling papers? Stale/melted candy?

I'm sorry. This store (and so many others like it) does not sell anything decent. It's a disgrace.

(And I smoke, so I know what it's like to want to run out quick for a pack, and to some place close. BUT, I would sooner go to Rainbow in Robbinsdale than that frightful hole.)

Anonymous said...

Looks like they are all paid up on their property taxes. Based on that i'd say they have a right to do their business. Would be great if every property owner paid taxes on time. Just good citizenship if you ask me.

Ranty said...

PS - I really like it when that awesome, shiny black BMW is parked diagonally across the parking in front. It's such a beautiful portrait of irony.

TeresaL. said...

I'm all "paid up" on my property taxes too but I don't condone illegal activity in my neighborhood or block. I call 911 and work WITH the city and the police, I walk around and pick up after myself and others and I respect my neighborhood and the people that I reside with. Paying your property taxes isn't something that you get a gold medal for...it's a no brainer. Paying your taxes also doesn't give you the green light to do "business".

The Hawthorne Hawkman said...

Based on a few of the comments, I'm going to go ahead and call Wally's a predatory convenience store.

People have rightly stated that they need (or at least highly value) a store nearby that allows them to get basic items without driving, biking, busing, or taking a taxi. I heard the same song and dance when Snow Foods was shut down, and even though that was a haven for illegal activity, I've no doubt some folks legitimately benefited from having such a store close by.

But Wally's and stores like that provide just enough of that kind of service/product to appear on the up-and-up. Their real business model, however, encourages or enables illegal activity. When they get called out on it, they fall back on the "poor people need a place to shop too" line.

And therein lies the conundrum. I wouldn't shed a tear if Wally's were shut down. But at least some people's ability to get actual products would be diminished.

I should point out that in Honduras, there are stores similar to Wally's on just about every block as very few people have their own vehicles. Yet those stores aren't havens of illicit activity. Also, since Honduras is the second-poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, poverty isn't an excuse for crime. So Wally's doesn't get any slack from me. They can run their business the right way and contribute positively to the neighborhood and they're not.

Wafana's used to be a decent place for neighbors to get quick groceries without driving down to Bix or Applebaum's... Back in the 1970s! But more recently, until it was shut down, decent folks didn't go within a block of the place.

1915bung said...

I'm all for neighborhood grocery stores. They can provide a very needed service to the community.

But the owners of these facilities have to be more interested in providing real goods and services to the community than cashing in on profitable vices.

If you look on the north side of Penn there is a very effective and profitable small grocery that serves the community very well without the same types of problems faced by Wally's. It's called Aldis.

Tyrone Washington said...

I love Wally's. They always have good service and know what I want to buy. Don't you people have better things to do than harass a business that generates tax revenue and provides a service to the City?

If you want some white bread convenience store where everything is in a neat little row you can go do your shopping in Edina. Wally's was here before you nosy people moved to this neighborhood and I pray to God it will be here when y'all move back to the suburbs.

Anonymous said...

Wally's isn't even in "your" neighborhood. Why don't you just mind you own business and let the WHO neighborhood deal with its problems.

Matt said...

Ahem. My questions really weren't rhetorical. I'm seeing at the top of the list Call count: 375. Doesn't that mean that there were 375 calls during the selected time period?

And there are a lot of Traffic Law Enforcements in that list. That strikes me as odd, but maybe that's just my misunderstanding of what we're looking at here.

Again, I'm not defending the store, just want to understand what I'm being shown here. How does one look this information up anyway? I'd love to look at the same data for my area.

Thanks.

Dyna replies:

I used to work for the bakers of Wonder Bread, Continental Baking Company. One of the hallmarks of an "inconvienece store" was their inventory of state Wonder Bread bought from the thrift stores. That Wonder Bread would stay on the shelves well past the thrift stores pull date, but was priced substantially higher than the fresh Wonder Bread sold in the legit convenience stores like Holiday.

Which begs the question, "why didn't the inconvenience store owners just call up the bakery and arrange delivery of Wonder Bread?". Well, even if they didn't set up a credit account and were a cash customer, that'd create a paper trail- the bakery delivery drivers record deliveries by store on paper or handheld computers.

Have you noted a pattern here in the "inconvenience stores"- no or broken credit card machines, cigarettes sold individually, unusually large inventories of postal scales, etc.. Yep, there a scam, plain and simple!

Anonymous said...

Mr. Washington.

I don't give a rip how long Wally's has been in business.

Guess what, I am not moving to the subrubs either. All the people in the NoMi that complain and moan about us busy bodies will just have to deal with it. We are not going anywhere.

It is one of my missions in life to clean up this place I call home. Home. That is right. I call NoMi home.

So if you don't like us busy bodies, maybe it is time for you to leave and take your littering, apathetic, crime tolerant attitude with you. There is no place for you in NoMi any longer.

And another thing. This has nothing to do with race. I know many african american members of the community that are busy bodies too.

Where were you born Tyrone? When did you move into the neighborhood? Nosy people?White bread?

The Hawthorne Hawkman said...

Tyrone, I hope Wally's is here for a long time as well. And neighborhoods do benefit from local grocery stores that are easily accessible (AND that accept WIC and EBT).

However, Wally's does need to be better than it is.

MeganG. said...

Folks remember when we are talking about Wally's and their owners - they ALREADY have a more decent store on Broadway and Thomas - it's called Handi Stop - it's not too bad - clean, not a LOT of loitering although I do see some occasionally. I don't buy anything there inside the store so I don't know what they carry or what the prices are. Of course there is every kind of tobacco product on the earth for sale, of course. They used to get smash and grabbed all the time.

My point is THESE FOLKS KNOW HOW TO KEEP A CLEAN STORE AND KEEP TROUBLE AWAY.

Why aren't they doing it at Wally's?

Can someone please ask the owner's to come here and explain and report what he is going to do about his problem inconvenience store.

Anonymous said...

This site would be much more meaningful if it were written and managed by The Hawthorne Hawkman. His articles are worth reading and he is the voice of reason and compassion. His comments show that he has a genuine concern for the PEOPLE in his neighborhood. I really enjoy his articles far more that the tabloid trash written by Johny Northside. And the biggest "troll" on this site is MeganG, who can never accept other readers commentary without a nasty response. Please Hawthorne Hawkman keep up the great work.

Pond-dragon said...

Looks like the same Anon: defending Wally's all the way down the comment section.

Well Anon:

A. It is as much our business as it is your business. We live here too.

B. If Wally's is a bastion of illegal activity, they need to clean up their act or we will clean it up for them. We prefer a safe clean environment, if they threaten that with a shady environment, do we let them jeopardize our children, homes and friends? The point being that places like Wally's support the concentration of poverty and they also support gang structures. (If you support the concentration of poverty and the creation of gangs we are on opposite sides of what is good business. It appears from that business perspective we do nothing until one of our sons or daughters has a Teddy Bear tied to a tree with a RIP note? (Fact not fiction, not even open for discussion)

C. We had a Wally's down the street called Big Stop, we get it far more than you can ever imagine, and we have been getting it for years if not decades. And it has nothing to do with white or black. Unless of course you are advocating that certain races should live in fear and be subjected to drug dealing and murders on their front doorstep because they are the same race?

D. These inconvenience stores by and large do not offer healthy selections, nor do they offer reasonable value for what they do offer. In short, are you advocating that folks already on stressed budgets should pay 20-30-100% more for lower quality items that they could purchase somewhere else, further driving them down the poverty ladder?

PS: If you have $ for a tobacco habit, ~ $1500/yr +/- , or candy and chips and pop, you have $ to get to a respectable grocery store.

If you fear the truth you will spend your life living a lie.

Johnny Northside said...

Matt,

You are correct and thank you so much for drawing this to my attention. There were five separate documents showing police calls for the area around Wally's, and the total count was 662. This initial blog post only has data from Document 1.

Accordingly, I am going into those other three documents and adding the additional data to this blog post. I will also get around to publishing the information about how to obtain the 911 data for your own area. In fact, I'll throw that information in a comment, here, so you get it as soon as possible.

Just for the record, I live near the Handi-Stop and I avoid it as well.

Yes, I know the owner has donated supplies for neighborhood picnics and whatnot, and it doesn't look as crappy as Wally's, but it's still a dump, and I've gotten harassed every time I've gone there - usually by the thugs buying their single cigarillos and rolling papers... but occasionally by the staff as well, who appear to have zero respect for women.

Matt said...

Ah, thanks, it makes a lot more sense now. Not that I really needed to see the rest of the documents, but I understand better now.

And thanks for the information on acquiring 911 call data.

I can ask them, but do you know what the story is with all of the traffic violations on there? I can't imagine those were actual 911 calls...is data from 911 calls and regular police reporting all mixed in these reports maybe?

Thanks again. Excellent way to not only see a comprehensive list of what has gone on in an area, but what police responses were as well.

I'd be interested to know just what NoMi business you guys think is acceptable there?

You don't want convenience stores, or auto parts stores. The shoe store has "butt" glass and the owners need to be harassed. The strip mall isn't any good. The residential rental properties should be shut down because they're invariably run by slumlords. People should leave the neighborhood to shop at the Rainbow in Robbinsdale. Some other convenience store is a hot bed of misogyny.

What sorts of businesses should be in NoMi? Certainly you need something more there than a dentist with nice stained glass windows.

@ Anon 12:02,

John and I do indeed have our different styles. Even when I disagree with what he says or how he approaches an issue, we're able to work together. One of the reasons that John seems sometimes more like a tabloid writer (to you or others, not to me) is because he's willing to wade into a messy issue and doesn't much care if folks get mad at him for that.

John and I share that trait, but with him it's ramped up much higher.

Without that, for instance, how would the community have known what was happening with major issues like the Jordan lawsuit(s)?

Furthermore, John can and does get content up much more frequently than I am able. So thank you for your flattery, but I'm perfectly comfortable with the blog as it is.

@ Gary,

This blog has held up plenty of businesses we like to support: the Bangkok Market, the Amazing Oriental market, Good Sports Bar & Grill, Donny Dirk's Zombie Den, Halek's, Broadway Pizza, Cub Foods, Broadway Liquor Outlet, 42 Avenue Staion, Victory 44, and North End Hardware, just to name a few. Local D'lish (North Loop) and The Butcher Block (Northeast) have also been prominently featured here. JNS readers, feel free to add to the list.

Furthermore, many of the writers and frequent commenters on this blog spend the vast majority of their dollars here in this community, and do so intentionally.

I just want to say that the prices at these stores are crazy high, From the crappy gas to the MT.Dew.
I also wanted to say someone has been pretending to be me using my name on this blog and the city pages to post some racist babblings about gentryfication, just wanted to say It's not me, dosent even sound like me and Mr Washington and the other Tyrone and I are two or three differient people. This is the one and only.

Gary, feel free to move from wherever you live to NoMi and rent an apartment with mold, peeling paint, leaky windows, and unreliable plumbing. Then you can conveniently shop at Wally's any time you want. If you think these are fine ways to run businesses, then by all means support those businesses yourself. Until you do so, please consider whether it is appropriate to criticize the rest of us who don't want to live in those conditions or shop at those stores or deal with the livability issues that accompany them just because of our zip code.

I can remember all the way back before Uptown was revitalized. And SoMi. And NEMi. I don't remember people arguing that the residents of those neighborhoods should just accept that their neighborhoods were dreck, were meant to be dreck, and should continue to be dreck.

A few of the recent posts have waded directly into a discussion of racism. I think it is more accurate that this is a discussion of classism. The reality is that the NoMi of 2010 is the most racially, religiously and ethnically diverse in the city. However, NoMi is the most economically homogeneous in the city (i.e. people of modest means). This isn't a black vs. white issue.

I for one find offensive the attitude that because I am of modest economic means that somehow I deserve drug dealing on my street, harassment at the grocery store, and muggings at the bus stop. And the attitude that if I dare to do my part to make it better, that I am behaving above my station.

There's one characteristic the stores on your list share Hawk, and that's that they're all elitist type places. Some people need diapers and formula. Your list doesn't include places where people who are actually raising their children need to go to shop.

Poor people and disabled people have trouble getting around. Wally's might not fit with your idealistic vision of a bleached NoMi filled with the trendiest of restaurants and cutest little shops but it is not a bad place for poor and disabled people to live. Please stop trying to make this part of the world inhospitable for us.

Margaret said...

I'd be interested in knowing what good rental property owners there are too. Not everybody who buys rental property in NOMI is a slumlord. Of course, it would be great if all houses were owned by their residents but having a decent and responsible landlord with law abiding tenants is better than a vacant house on the block.

The Hawthorne Hawkman said...

Margaret, if you've got any landlords in mind, I would sincerely be happy to profile them on this blog. It is hard enough, though, to track down data on the BAD ones.

Eloise, one other place I forgot to mention is So-Low over on Lowry and Emerson. I LOVE that place. Just got a rack of goat ribs for $9 and a duck for $12, and their products have been blogged about here as well. For the record, I did mention Cub Foods, which is a place where the products you brought up can be purchased. I understand Cub is not as accessible as it should be though.

I'm not saying (yet, at least) that Wally's needs to be shut down. Allegations have been made about their credit card machines and other things which, if true, may be illegal. So I will say that there are problems with illegal behavior at that site and I believe that the way Wally's is currently being run contributes to that. Therefore, that business has an obligation to the community to do its part in terms of addressing this issue.

Part of the change might mean pressure on Metrotransit to move or more closely monitor their bus stop, and holding the police accountable as well. But running a business is not a right; that license is a privilege granted under certain conditions. It's time we hold businesses in our community to the high standard that such a privilege should entail.

Thank you for mentioning SoLow. I'd never heard of it until now and ran a search on it. Sounds very similar to a few places back in Indianapolis where family used to shop. I'll be checking it out thanks to you.

This is for the Hawthorne Hawkman, with regard to Maraget's comment asking about any reputable landlords. You don't have to post this, by the way. Just thought I'd give you an example in case you did want to profile one. The home tour coming up in April is slated to feature 1414 Emerson Ave N, which is owned by Brent and Alyssa Pier (of Hawthorne) and their in-laws (on his side)in the Old Highland area. They've been doing massive remodeling on the place since buying it last year, and they have a couple other properties in the area that are well kept and have nice, neighborly tenants. There are others too. Just a couple weeks ago there was an open house for a property in the 1400 block of Girard where the landlord did a pretty substantial rehabbing of the place (his name was Blake, but I don't recall the last name). Anyway, it might be a nice way to promote the nomi home tour and some reputable citizens and landlords in nomi.

I know of a great landlord in our neighborhood. He has a four unit apartment unit across the street from our house. He spent a great deal of money fixing it up and is very careful about who he rents to.

He answers my calls when I have problems about tenants, keeps the property clean and maintained.

He even dropped off 15 "We Watch. We Call" signs at my house last fall.

He is looking to buy more properties in our area, which I total support. He says that the marekt is really competitve here. Many of these foreclosed properties are being bought up by questionable investors or by the real estate agents themselves.

One in partiular, 318 22nD ave n was recently purchased by a real estate agent...He had people living there without a rental license. He also had plumbers and HVAC guys working on the property without a permit.

Now this is not what we need. This is the type of behavior that has to go.

la_vie_en_rose said...

Hm, that's opposite behavior of a landlord I had in Cincinnati years ago. He took our money, told us we couldn't move in because he was "fixing up the place," and come to find out, he didn't even actually own the place yet. I don't doubt you have your share of those kind of people here, too.

Johnny Northside said...

To Tyrone from NoMi--I want to urge you to get a blogspot profile, so you can log in and post with your profile identity. That way nobody can pretend to be you who isn't actually you.

Anonymous said...

Hmmm, I bet I know who is stealing T Jaramillo's identity. And... it wouldn't be the FIRST time this person has been involved with identity theft!

Ranty said...

I believe the Blake mentioned is Blake Nordby. He's pretty active in Old Highland and I have met him - he seems like a really good guy.

There's a lot of good stuff going on all over NoMi, but I really have to hand it to OH in particular - they have an incredibly engaged group of folks, and I particularly love the fact that they do a lot of fun social events, and not just dry meetings with long agendas.

(That's not a dig against any other neighborhood - I've participated in several, and OH is just the most social that I've seen. And social WORKS!)

And, of course, the Victorians are to die for.
