Document Description
The proposed project consists of the expansion of the existing 126,783 sf Wal-Mart store on East Noble Avenue by 89,755 sf, increasing the total floor area to 216,538 sf. The primary departments within the expanded store will be general merchandise sales, grocery sales, indoor garden center; Tire and Lube Express, and ancillary retail and tenant areas (i.e., ATM, fast food restaurant, medical clinic, vision care, hair salon, photo lab, portrait studio, & pharmacy). The proposed project would expand the existing store by approximately 89,755 sf and would add a 9,748 sf outdoor garden center and bagged goods area. Wal-Mart nonetheless has requested that its Conditional Use Permit allow expansion of up to 91,469 sf of total store area plus the 9,748 outdoor garden and bagged goods area (which amounts to a post-expansion total area of 228, 000 sf including the outdoor garden and bagged goods area) so that there is some ability to accommodate any minor refinements that become necessary. The additional 1,714 sf of floor area included to reach this total sf of 228,000 will be treated as general merchandise area for purposes of analysis of the EIR.
