WILMINGTON, NC (StarNewsOnline.com) — Walmart said Thursday that it plans to anchor Paramount Development Corp.'s proposed shopping center at 8107 Market St. in the Porters Neck area.
Walmart and Paramount representatives met with New Hanover County staff Wednesday to review plans for the 182,000-square-foot Supercenter, which will employ 300 people, Walmart said. The Supercenter will offer groceries, a bakery, deli, garden center and drive-through pharmacy.
Walmart spokesman Bill Wertz said the store would help attract other businesses to the area and generate tax revenue for the county.
