RED OAK - Assistant City Manager Todd Fuller announced at the Monday, Aug. 9 Red Oak City Council Meeting the Wal-Mart Executive Committee has approved the building of a Wal-Mart Super Center.

The property on which it will be built is located at the northeast quadrant of Ovilla Road and Ryan Drive, extending to Burney Lane and behind several existing businesses that front onto Ovilla Road.

Wal-Mart originally purchased the property in late 2003 and went through the zoning and platting process to gain final approval from the city in 2006.
Subsequently, Wal-Mart put the project on hold until this recent project approval was made by their executive committee.

Engineers are currently updating plans for the project and will be going through an amendment process with the city and the Texas Department Of Transportation over the next several months.

The new store’s expected opening date is sometime in 2012.

The next walmart may be only 4 miles away, but it is much more convenient and hopefully less crowded to have one right down the street. I am so------- ready for it to finally open. We need something in town.
