New Walmart planned for Henrico

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) -

A new Walmart could be headed to Henrico County, and that would mean new jobs for nearly 100 people.

The store would be located on Brook Road where an old motel currently sits. It's still in the planning stages, but some are already excited - especially business owners in the area.

Business owners say if a Walmart moves to the area, it could bring a lot of extra traffic through the area. This would not be a full Walmart store; there is already one of those just down the road. This would be a smaller Walmart neighborhood market.

The store would sit at the site of Virginia Inn motel, giving customers access to fresh food, groceries, a pharmacy and a gas station. According to Walmart officials, these markets typically employ about 95 people.

The hotel is still occupied at this time. No word yet on when the store would actually open.
