Shuttered Colo. Wal-Mart Store to Be Reborn as "Mini-supercenter"

LAKEWOOD, Colo. -- Wal-Mart has said that it will add 22,000 square feet to a recently closed store here and reopen it as Colorado's first "mini-supercenter," according to the Denver Post.

The plan, which was revealed Monday, calls for a $4 million renovation that will bring the size of the store to 150,000 square feet. On average, the Bentonville, Ark.-based company's supercenters measure from 200,000 square feet to 250,000 square feet.

"We wouldn't do a store of this size in a metro area if it were the sole store for the market, but we see this store as catching extra business from the other supercenter," Wal-Mart spokesman Keith Morris told the newspaper. He added that the revamped store was expected to open next spring.

When contacted by PG, Wal-Mart officials were unavailable for further comment.

Wal-Mart closed the store, located at West Fourth Avenue and Wadsworth Boulevard, in March, which was when it opened a 226,000-square-foot supercenter at West Colfax Avenue and Wadsworth Boulevard.
