Three Wal-Mart Expresses for Downtown Columbia?


There may be as many as three new, smaller-scale Walmart stores coming into the heart of Columbia, an official familiar with the retail giant’s plans for expansion into the city said Thursday.

One of the sites getting the company’s attention is the former Jim Moore Cadillac dealership on North Main, near the Elmwood Park and Cottontown neighborhoods, according to the official as well as the executive director of Sustainable Midlands, a coalition of environmental groups active in the debate about Wal-Mart’s interest in downtown.

Mayor Steve Benjamin and Councilwoman Belinda Gergel said they, too, have heard about Wal-Mart’s multi-store plan.
