Another Wal-mart Coming to Wichita Falls?

Another Wal-mart Coming to Wichita Falls?

Wichita Falls is one step closer to having a Wal-mart Neighborhood Market.

The new store will be located on Southwest Parkway across from McNeil Junior High.

In order to make this happen, the company needed Wichita Falls City Council members to make an exception to an ordinance that prohibits alcohol from being sold within 300ft from a school.

That exemption was passed by the city council on Tuesday.

The Neighborhood Market brand of Walmart is different from the three Superstores already in Wichita Falls. It will be a 43,000 square foot grocery store.

The next step is to review the site plan.

City leaders said the new store will help the local economy.
