WalMart no wallflower

first_img • Wal-Mart Stores Inc. operates three Walmart-brand stores in Vancouver.• Battle Ground: Construction is expected this year on a 154,000-square-foot Walmart Supercenter on the northwest corner of Scotton Way and state Highway 503 (Southwest 10th Avenue).• Vancouver: No construction dates set for a Supercenter store at Eastgate Plaza, south of Northeast Fourth Plain Boulevard between 137th and 147th avenues. However, Wal-Mart has accepted construction bids for preparing the site of its proposed Salmon Creek-area Supercenter near Washington State University Vancouver.• Vancouver: Wal-Mart announced in 2012 plans for its first Neighborhood Market to open this summer in Vancouver. The grocery store and pharmacy will occupy a 43,000-square-foot portion of a former 90,000-square-foot WinCo Foods store in the Vancouver Plaza shopping center between Fourth Plain Boulevard and state Highway 500.o Vancouver: Plans to redevelop the vacant Fred Meyer site at Fourth Plain and Grand boulevards could also be for a Neighborhood Market, although no company name is listed on a proposal submitted to the city to build a new 42,000-square-foot grocery store. Two clues point to Wal-Mart: The listed applicant is PacLand, which commonly develops Walmart stores, and the proposed store’s size also matches the 42,000- to 43,000-square-foot market-store concept.• Portland: The site has been cleared for one of the smallest local Walmart Supercenters, an 85,900-square-foot store at the Hayden Meadows shopping complex east of Interstate 5.
