Walmart's "Neighborhood Markets". They are a mid sized store, about 1/4 the size of a Super Center and about twice the size of Walmart Express stores.

anyone with a login for the reflector article online?

The Daily Reflector

It says something about a gas station with them? So what exactly are these stores? Like just grocery items or what will they stock? I'm confused?!

From Wikipedia:
Walmart Market is a chain of grocery stores launched by Walmart in 1998.[3] These stores are designed to be the opposite of vastly larger superstores. These smaller stores are meant to "woo shoppers with easier parking, less crowded aisles and quicker checkout." Walmart Market stores offer a variety of products including a full line of groceries.

From the DR:

Greenville shoppers accustomed to the Walmart “supercenter” will have a different shopping experience when the mega-retailer brings its downsized concept to town, city staff said on Thursday at a scheduled Board of Adjustment meeting.

Bohler Engineering NC, in the early stages of a project to build two Walmart “neighborhood stores” in Greenville, unanimously was granted special-use permits for gas stations that will adjoin the stores.


One of the stores is slated to be built at the intersection of Arlington Boulevard and Fire Tower Road, next to the Carmike Cinemas complex, according to the tentative zoning plans. A second store will be located at the intersection of Regency Boulevard and South Memorial Drive.

When completed, the two retail stores, each approximately 41,000 square feet, will employ 90 people and provide shoppers access to the products found in a typical Walmart supermarket section, including groceries, fresh foods, basic needs, a drive-thru pharmacy and adjoining gas station, according to company store descriptions. The stores are expected to stay open 24 hours, the Bohler representative said.

“The smaller size allows us to build in locations not suitable for our larger centers, allowing them to be closer to home for many shoppers looking for just a few items,” Walmart spokesman Bill Wertz said. “All of the neighborhood markets will allow customers to order items at walmart.com and pick them up at the store, using our site-to-store service.”

A completion target date has not been set for the two stores, and official building plans have not been submitted because the developers first wanted to receive special-use permits for the gas stations, city officials said.

The grocery stores already are a permitted use on the properties and do not require any special-use permits or rezonings.

Both locations are zoned commercial and are in compliance with the city’s future land-use plan, staff said.

The two smaller neighborhood stores would enlarge the company’s presence and complement its larger supercenters on Southwest Greenville Boulevard and East 10th Street, according to a Walmart corporate growth statement issued on Feb. 20.

“Customers’ needs and expectations are changing. They want to shop when they want and how they want, and we are transforming our business to meet their expectations,” Bill Simon, Walmart U.S. president and CEO, said.

“Customers appreciate the broad assortment of our supercenters for their stock-up trips as well as our small store formats for fill-in trips. By unlocking this growth opportunity and further combining our supercenters and small store formats with an unlimited selection available through ecommerce, we provide our customers with anytime, anywhere access to our brand.”

Walmart operates 346 Neighborhood Markets and 20 smaller Walmart Express stores nationwide, including six Neighborhood Markets and 15 Walmart Express stores in North Carolina. The company is expanding its capital forecast provided last October and now expects to add approximately 270 to 300 small stores during the fiscal year, officials said.

“In addition to providing best-in-class one-stop shopping at supercenters, we believe that accelerating our small store expansion will allow customers to choose where and when to shop based on their needs,” Simon said.

Another roundabout on 5th St in West Greenville received approval. This is a MUCH NEEDED improvement. I absolutely despise that intersection. Because it isn't a normal intersection, it can stop the heavy traffic on 5th St for way too long. Plus it will take out that ghetto "car wash". But IIRC, the city was planning a land-swap with the owners.

Here's the website for the company that will be designing the new two new Walmart Market stores in Greenville.
Bohler Engineering
By some of their work on the website it looks like they design some pretty nice stores. Here's to hoping that they actually look nice like a Harris Teeter and not like a normal Walmart. Some of their stores are huge eyesores.

The last thing any town needs is more of Walmart retailing. They're making and keeping people poor, and it's the taxpayers who end up footing the bill.
