Newberry Wal-Mart to House Piedmont Tech


Construction should start in the next couple of weeks on the old Newberry Square.

The former Wal-Mart store and strip mall on Wilson Road will soon start a transformation. Last night Newberry County Council voted to award a bid of just under $25,000 to A & B Construction of Greenwood to take the ceiling tile, lights, insulation, and carpet out of the strip mall stores as the first phase of renovating that portion of the property.

The work to start gutting the stores will start in a couple of weeks but some councilmen questioned the bid which was $10,000 lower than the next lowest bid and thousands off from the top bid of $99,800. Council was assured that the bid was bonded for the work to be performed as needed.

While the work is being done, the county is starting to get bids on a new roof for the section and testing to see if the air and heat systems will work.
