Buffalo doesn't have a Walmart store, but could soon have its traffic. A dilapidated plaza in West Seneca could be the home of a new Walmart Store under plans announced yesterday. Access to the store will be from a driveway loacted in the city.
The 2400 Seneca Street property has been the home of Twin Fair, Gold Circle and Ames stores in the past. It has been vacant for eight years. The proposed store would be 115,000 sq.ft. and employ 300.
Despite persistent rumors of Walmart looking in the Hertel/Delaware/Elmwood area of North Buffalo for a store location, the big box retailer with over 4300 U.S. locations has yet to land a city site (pssssst Central Park Plaza).
According to South Buffalo Assemblyman Mark Schroeder in today's News, "We need a game-changer and we got it."
