Wal-Mart quietly has been working on its second project in Greenwood.
Three tracts of land were purchased by the Wal-Mart Real Estate Business Trust, according to titles to real estate and a land title survey filed with the Greenwood County clerk’s office.
The three tracts total more than 33 acres and cost the retail giant more than $1.4 million. The future site is between Bypass 25 Northeast and Cambridge Avenue East.
According to building plans submitted to the county building department, the new store is set to encompass 157,000 square feet under roof and will include an auto center. Greenwood’s current Wal-Mart Supercenter on Hwy. 72 Bypass NW is a little more than 199,000 square feet on about 25 acres.
