Orangeburg to Get Two Wal-Mart Markets


The world’s largest retailer is planning to build two new grocery stores in Orangeburg, but at least one of the locations remains in question due to zoning concerns.

Walmart Stores Inc. announced Wednesday it is planning to construct Walmart Neighborhood Markets near the corner of U.S. 301 and Stonewall Jackson Boulevard and on a parcel of land between Columbia Road and Boulevard Street.

“We are interested in serving the community and bringing customers convenient, affordable shopping options, and we’re hopeful that the project can move forward,” Walmart spokeswoman Amanda Henneberg said.

“We will determine next steps once the process is completed,” she said.

Neighborhood Markets offer produce, meat and dairy products, bakery and deli items, household supplies, health and beauty aids and a pharmacy. The freestanding, 41,000-square-foot grocery stores are about a quarter of the size of the typical Walmart Supercenter.
