First Walmart in The Keys To Open In 2017

Walmart is planning a superstore in the Keys, according to Keysnet.

It would be the first Walmart in Monroe County. Walmart has been aggressively expanding in Dade County recently.

Plans call for a 123,000-square-foot store, smaller than Walmart’s typical superstore. It would open in 2017.

The Walmart would be part of a 335,000-square-foot shopping center proposed for Rockland Key. It would be built on a 33-acre site, and include 1,258 parking spaces.

Walmart says that it plans to invest $30 million in the store.

Respect to Miami for still technically being out of the Walmart game. There is technically a neighborhood market by Walmart on the very western fringes of the city near where calle ocho meets the Palmetto Expressway; however this is about the size of a Publix.

Let’s see how long it takes for people to find another endangered animal or start complaining about the traffic so they can fight Walmart tooth and nail once again… so predictable.

There have been plenty of other Wal-Mart’s that have opened recently that you didn’t hear one peep from protesters. The two that you have did merit a protest
