3 Walmart Projects in Stone Mountain Area
Residents in Dekalb County apartments and homes will soon have 3 additional Walmart options in Stone Mountain and Lithonia.
Memorial Drive near N. Hairston
The first project is nearly completed, a 150,000 square foot supercenter on Memorial Drive near N. Hairston Rd. Plans are for a second quarter opening this year, and the creation of 250 new jobs.
One nearby competitor, Kroger on N. Hairston, plans to make improvements in the second quarter, too. Kroger is doing a $1 million remodel of the N. Hairston store, with a tentative completion date of April.
Stonecrest and Panola Rd/Covington Hwy
Another Walmart supercenter is under construction near Sam’s Club on Mall Parkway, across from the Mall at Stonecrest.
A third project, a Walmart Neighborhood Market, has not begun construction yet. The Neighborhood Market, which is a grocery-only concept, is slated to replace the former Big Lots at the corner of Panola Road and Covington Highway.
