Wal-Mart to open new North Lauderdale supercenter in 2012

Wal-mart is set to open a 180,000-square foot supercenter at 7800 West McNab Road in North Lauderdale next year, the company said. The store will replace the existing North Lauderdale store five blocks away at 7300 West McNab Road. The city commission is expected to sign off on the project as early as August, according to the Sun Sentinel.

“I’m happier than a pig in mud,” said North Lauderdale Mayor Jack Brady. “It’s a great thing for our residents in today’s economy.”
The site was previously home to a U-Pick, which closed in 1998.

Wal-Mart bought the 40-acre plot in 2006 for almost $17 million, according to county property records with the aim of transforming it into a massive supercenter complex featuring an 80-room hotel, restaurants and 36,000 square feet of additional shopping.

Then-city manager Richard Sala complained to the City Commission however that Wal-Mart was having trouble attracting restaurants and stores to move in next door. Walmart shelved the plans in 2008.

The new proposal calls for just a standalone Walmart on 26 acres. [Sun Sentinel]
