NEW YORK (

TheStreet

) -- The notion Wal-Mart coming to New York City has been threatened for years -- and now it might finally happen.

The discount giant is currently scouting locations, which include a shopping center in Jamaica Bay, Brooklyn, according to

Dow Jones Newswires

.

Wal-Mart has already tried to nab locations in Queens and Staten Island, but failed. Of course, there have been many opponents aligned against Wal-Mart coming to New York, specifically unions and other mom-and-pop shops.
