Tarrytown, N.Y. – DLC Management Corp. announced a new deal signed with Wal-Mart Stores to open a 44,271-sq.-ft. Walmart Market at DLC’s Bethesda Walk Shopping Center in Lawrenceville, Ga.
The deal, which was finalized on November 21, marks the grocery-only concept’s first store in the Atlanta metro area.
A multi-million dollar renovation is planned for the interior and exterior of the space, formerly a Publix supermarket which closed in February 2009. The new lease signing has revitalized this community shopping center, generating much new interest in the available inline spaces and raising the occupancy rate by nearly 65%. Walmart Market plans to open in spring 2012.
