180,000-SF Walmart Breaking Ground in March at Franklin Mills
Construction will ramp up in March on a new Walmart store at Franklin Mills, the largest outlet and value retail shopping destination in Philadelphia.
Walmart's new store will total 180,000 square feet, an expansion that will create space for a full grocery department, produce, dairy, meats and frozen and prepared foods. It will be situated close to the Old Navy Outlet and Modell's Sporting Goods.
WWalmart will provide enhanced convenience and value for our loyal shoppers," said John Ahle, general manager of Franklin Mills. "This new addition will further boost our desirable retail, dining and entertainment mix, meeting consumer demand for true one-stop shopping."
The Walmart expansion will create 250 new jobs at Franklin Mills plus hundreds of jobs during the construction period for the Philadelphia Building and Construction Trades.
Franklin Mills, with more than 200 stores, is located 15 miles northeast of downtown Philadelphia.
