Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market under construction

Written by  Thursday, 10 July 2014 09:30

  The new Wal-Mart store will be primarily a grocery store.  Construction on the new Neighborhood Market is underway now at Brampton Avenue and Fair Road.

 

  The new store is one of 500 of the smaller stores Wal-Mart plans to open in a marketing strategy announced last year by Bill Simon, Wal-Mart's president and CEO of its U.S. operations, to compete directly with grocery stores, discount/dollar stores and drugs stores.

 

  The new 41,000 square foot store will feature fresh produce and groceries, a deli, bakery, drive through pharmacy, some household items and a gas station.  It is expected to be open in the spring of 2015 and employ about 95 people.

 

  The store is part of a $14 million shopping center being developed by Hutton Company of Chattanooga, Tennessee. 

 

  The Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market store is one of two new grocery stores scheduled to be built in Statesboro.  The other will be part of a shopping off Northside Drive East and Veterans Memorial Parkway planned by Armstrong Development.
