As it was in Missoula and it seems to be in LA as well. The only Walmart 'in' Los Angeles is basically a ghetto-ass three-story Dollar Tree with Walmart signage outside (it bears absolutely no resemblance to a Walmart inside) in an otherwise empty mall.

It's a common practice to keep Walmart outside of cities.
