Walmart to Join OC, Other Area Grocers Pledge Increased Investment
Oak Cliff residents have long lamented the lack of local grocery stores. It looks like Councilman Dave Neumann was listening.
Neumann announced yesterday that a Walmart Neighborhood Market is going in on Fort Worth Avenue near Hampton Road, the former site of Colorado Place Apartments, by 2012, and the area’s second Aldi will open March 9 at Fort Worth Avenue and Jacqueline Drive. Not wanting to be left out of all the fresh food fun, Kroger at Wynnewood Village Shopping Center has extended its lease for five years and pledged a $2 million renovation.
