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. Despite three years of marketing, U.S. Bowling Congress and Village officials were not able to to attract other retailers. 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.

The new Walmart will not be mainly a grocery store. It will also carry general merchandise in a number of departments.
Greendale residents expecting a Walmart with mostly food items will find something quite different when they visit the store after its Jan. 23 opening. The new store will be like a Supercenter Walmart, though smaller. At 90,000 square feet, it comes inbetween the 154,000-square-foot Greenfield Supercenter on Highway 100 and the 40,000-square-foot West Allis Neighborhood Market, said store manager Jason Steffen. Greendale Patch toured the store Monday, getting a sneak peek at the location that will carry an array of products including a full line-up of grocery, electronics, apparel, toys, hardware, sporting goods, pharmacy and general merchandise. Steffen said there is probably less space for food items than what some of the Greendale …

The Board of Trustees is set to discuss a proposed Panda Express at the former Leath Furniture site.
The Greendale Board of Trustees will be discussing a proposed Panda Express to be built at the old Leath Furniture building on 76th Street at Tuesday night's meeting.
