Appliance retailer Wal-Mart Stores Inc. announced that the State of Mexico approved the building of a new store less than one mile from the ancient pyramids of Teotihuacan.

"The project in question does not damage the conservation of archaeological remains, nor the integrity, environmental or cultural values of the archaeological zone," according to the report by the Mexico chapter of Icomos, an international council on monuments and sites.

The report did recommend several measures, including the use of non-reflective roofing materials, perimeter walls and trees to further hide the store, which would operate under the name of a Mexican chain owned by Wal-Mart.

The council said the store would not ruin the view from the top of the pyramids, which are nearly a mile away. (AP)
