Will You Shop at the New Greendale Walmart?
With Sendik's and Pick 'N Save down the road from Greendale, will residents shop for their groceries in the new Walmart?
Rain or shine Greendale's new Walmart will open Jan. 23.
The new Walmart will have a smaller Supercenter format with 40 percent of the store dedicated to groceries and pharmacy, as well as two out lots for tenants. Tenants include Chick-Fil-A and a possibly a US Cellular store.
The building was built at the old U.S. Bowling Congress site. Before construction the property was valued at $4 million. Village officials have said that once development is done the value of the property would go up to $10 million or more, improving the village’s tax base.
Commenters on previous articles said they would have liked to have seen other retailers, such as Trader Joe's or more restaurants. Trader Joe's was one of the retailers approached and did not show interest in the Southridge area.
Other commenters have said they will not shop at Walmart and willl continue to shop at nearby Sendiks and Pick 'n Save in Franklin and Greenfield.
