Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market confirmed for Statesboro's Market District
Construction for the new Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market on Brampton Avenue progresses Tuesday afternoon.
A city planning board meeting involving a "grocery store" beginning to be built at Brampton Avenue and Fair Road was underway when a reporter's cellphone, neglectfully left on, rang. It was Wal-Mart Stores Inc. calling to confirm that the 41,000-square-foot supermarket will be a Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market. "We weren't trying to be mysterious," Wal-Mart spokesman Bill Wertz said when the call was returned after the meeting.
