Walmart Expands in Texas and Attempts in Midtown Miami
Walmart opened their fifth store in Corpus Christi, Texas, which is expected to add 470 jobs to the Coastal Bend region, according to an MSNBC report and discount retailer is trying again to open up shop in Miami.
Walmart is trying again to launch a store in Midtown Miami after their first unsuccessful attempt six years ago, reports the Miami Herald.
Walmart has a contract with Developers Diversified Realty to buy five acres of land and is working on a site plan to be submitted to the city in the next couple of months, Walmart Florida spokeswoman Michelle Belaire told the Herald. Walmart doesn’t need any zoning change or land use variances for the site.
The store would be a 155,000 square-foot shop, slightly larger than the center’s Target, and offer a full-service grocery store.
“Miami is a tremendously underserved community for us,” Belaire said. “We know the City of Miami residents shop our stores. Right now they’re leaving the city and coming into our stores elsewhere in Miami-Dade County.”
Current tenants at the Center include Target, Marshalls, HomeGoods, PetSmart, Ross Dress for Less and The Sports Authority, according to the article.
The New Corpus Christi store is 155,000 square feet and has thirty departments from electronics to clothing and groceries, the article states.Tell us what you think in the comments below or on:
