Walmart store slated for Diagonal Plaza

BOULDER – Wal-Mart on Monday announced plans to open a new store in Boulder, reviving the company’s efforts to have a presence in the city.

The company expects to open a new Walmart Neighborhood Market this fall in the Diagonal Plaza at 3303 30th St. According to the company, the 53,000-square-foot store will have from 65 to 95 employees.

The store will fill a long-vacant spot at Diagonal Plaza. The outlet will include a supermarket and pharmacy, a release from the company said. Walmart representatives were not available for additional comment Tuesday morning.

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. (NYSE: WMT) does not have a presence in Boulder. The Bentonville, Arkansas-based company has long tried to gain a foothold in Boulder, including a 2002 attempt to build a Supercenter at what was then Crossroads Mall. The company faced a protracted campaign from anti-Walmart advocates, including the Boulder Independent Business Alliance, according to Boulder County Business Report coverage from that time.
