WOODLAND, CA—Walmart has agreed to take over a former Mervyn’s department store here at County Fair Fashion Mall.
The new Walmart Neighborhood Market will occupy the now-vacant, 62,000-sq.-ft. building at 1250 E. Gibson Road. The company has startedand expects to open soon.
Scott Sterlekar, director of real estate andfor Primero Management, said the store will be a great addition to the mall. “This new Walmart will allow for improvement in the retail climate in the Woodland area and provide a non-competitive synergy with other mall tenants. With proximity of the various neighborhoods surrounding the mall, in addition to the new residential construction next door, this will be a great fit.”
The mall is anchored by JCPenney, Burlington Coat Factory and Cinemark theaters. Negotiations are now underway for another new anchor to replace the 57,000-sq.-ft. former Gottschalk’s. Primero Management manages the property.
