The wait is over for those excited about remodeling efforts at Cottage Grove’s Walmart location.
The Walmart Corporation recently announced that Cottage Grove residents are invited to a grand opening at the expanded Walmart store, which opens Wednesday, March 27, at 901 Row River Road. The grand opening is scheduled for 8 a.m., and the store will be open to the public immediately following the ceremony.
According to a Monday release, the expanded store brings approximately 60 new jobs to the area and will provide Cottage Grove residents with one-stop shopping convenience for their grocery and general merchandise needs. Following the grand opening, the store will now be open 24 hours, seven days a week.
“Congratulations to Walmart for this beautiful addition to their building. This newly remodeled building will bring additional shopping opportunities to our residents and will help introduce many visitors to our community,” said City Manager Richard Meyers. “Most importantly, the larger space and wider variety will bring many valuable jobs to the community. We are looking forward to a continued partnership with Walmart and their associates.”For the complete article see the 03-20-2013 issue.
