LATHAM, N.Y.—Walmart announced that it will open a new SuperCenter at the redeveloped commercial complex, last known as Latham Circle Mall.
The 180,000 square foot store will serve as an anchor for the new Shoppes at Latham Circle.
The old store on Troy Schenectady Road will close when the new store is opened. The move will create 85 new jobs, and will preserve 200 jobs from the relocated store.
"Our customers have long been asking us to add groceries to our store because they want more affordable shopping choices. We can serve customers much better with an expanded store at the new site. This is a good project for the company and community, and we hope our participation will help ensure the success of a major redevelopment project," said Walmart spokesman William C. Wertz.
