Walmart announced today plans to build a new supercenter in Springdale.
The new 180,000-square-foot store will be just off the Interstate 540 and Elm Springs Road intersection. Walmart states in a press release it will bring an estimated 300 new jobs to the area.
Walmart and Springdale city officials scheduled a new conference for Thursday when they will share details on road and infrastructure improvements, and the energy-efficient technology and environmentally friendly features planned to reduce energy and water consumption at the store.
The 180,000-square-foot store will be located just off Highway 540 at 4976 Elm Springs Road. Construction will begin in 2013, with the new store expected to open in the fall of 2014.
