Three smaller Walmart stores are planned for Greenville, which is already home to two Walmart Supercenters.
Mayor Allen Thomas says three Walmart Markets are planned in Greenville.
Special use permits have been submitted to build the grocery store and gas stations near Carmike Cinema at Firetower and Arlington, and on Memorial Drive at Regency, which is just down from Sears. Construction plans are already in for a Walmart Market without gas, on Stantonsburg Road near the new Hess Station where Stantonsburg turns into Highway 264.
The markets are smaller than the supercenters, but twice the size of the Walmart Express stores.
