Walmart Neighborhood Market Breaking Ground in New Town
New Town to open a Walmart Neighborhood Market
New Town, Williamsburg, VA – Walmart is nearly ready to break ground on its Neighborhood Market off Monticello Avenue in New Town.
“We don’t have a certain grand opening date yet,” said spokesman William Wertz. “We hope to start construction shortly after the new year. We’re going through the final phases of getting all the permits in order.”
The new 41,785-square-foot grocery store will be the latest addition at Settler’s Market near New Town, which has restarted construction after building ceased and the site was auctioned a few years ago.
Walmart dodged those troubles. It bought the eight-acre property at the corner of Monticello and Route 199 in New Town for $6 million in 2008, separately from Settler’s Market, and has been quietly sitting on its plans. This year, the company received approvals from New Town’s Design Review Board and the county’s Planning Commission Design Review Committee to move ahead.
Walmart rolled out the Neighborhood Market concept in 1998, and now has more than 250 locations in the country, including one in Norfolk. Another three are planned on the lower Peninsula.
The stores feature produce, deli, meat and dairy, health and beauty products, photo processing and a drive-thru pharmacy. They employ approximately 95 people each, with plans to hire about six months before opening, Wertz said.
“We are looking forward to opening the store,” he added. “We’ve found this format is extremely popular with customers.”
Here, another 20,000-square-foot outparcel building will host more retail, according to county Planning documents.
Walmart has already obtained building permits, and Planning staff expect the final, approvable site plans to be submitted within days.
