A proposed Walmart store in Blaine is upsetting neighbors.

The Blaine City Council on Thursday night considered whether to allow Walmart to relocate from the east side of I-35 near Lexington and build a new store on the Westside of the interstate.

The store can't sell groceries at its current location and Walmart will be able to at the new location.

Neighbors say the store will create traffic and noise problems.

The vote on the proposal has been postponed until Feb. 13.
