A new 41,403 square foot grocery-only store has been approved for construction at 1137 Powder Springs Road. The location will be one of the first Walmart Neighborhood Markets in Georgia and is expected to create 80 to 100 jobs. The new Walmart Neighborhood Market will be built within the existing Bellemeade Shopping Center, replacing the Food Depot which closed earlier this year.
“We are very pleased to see this new investment in our city and expect it to positively impact the economy of the area,” said city manager Bill Bruton. “We’re hopeful the store will generate other new businesses nearby. Also, the appearance of the building and landscaping will blend well with the streetscape enhancements the city has made on Powder Springs Street.”
The store is scheduled to open as early as 2012.
