CHEEKTOWAGA, NY -- A new Walmart Supercenter in Cheektowaga is set to open in the fall of 2016.
The new store will replace the nearby Thruway Plaza store, which is being closed. This will add an additional 85 jobs and preserve the 300 existing jobs from the old store. This is part of the redevelopment of the former Super Flea Market site in Cheektowaga. Walmart is just one of the few redevelopment projects on Walden Avenue. Across from the new Walmart, an old warehouse is also being converted into new retail space.
Construction for the new Walmart is expected to begin this month.
In the new Supercenter will have the general merchandise but also fresh produce and groceries, including organic and natural selections.
