Wal-Mart Coming to Pickens


Rumors that Walmart would be opening a location in Pickens have been flying around town for the last several, but the word became official Thursday afternoon. Walmart’s Pickens location is slated to open sometime in 2013, according to Chris Carlson, with Law Kingdon Architecture. Carlson represented Walmart at a Thursday meeting of the Pickens Board of Architecture Review. The board signed off on the initial site plans during the meeting.

The Pickens Walmart will be located at the intersection of Hwy 8 and Roberts Road on land including the site of the former Norris Ford dealership, Carlson said.

The Pickens location will be a 93,000 square foot store, which will include a 7,000 square foot Garden Center and a full service pharmacy. The store will also include a grocery element, Carlson said. “This one will have between 17,000 – 20,000 square feet of grocery,” he said.
