Armstrong spills the beans on Walmart Neighborhood Market

Posted: Updated:
MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News) - There is a lot going on at city hall tonight.From food vendor permits to accepting bids for a $600,000 water pump project, council members have a lot to consider.

But one story we've been covering is the new grocery stores coming to monroe and one councilman is telling us who will be building.  The city council is considering request for alcohol permits on two new area grocery stores.

One request is for a development on Mckeen Place near North 18th Street.

The other request is for a development on Desiard Street near ULM.

One of the companies asking for an alcohol permit is Polestar Development, who is also working with the city of West Monroe.

Last week we reported that Polestar had submitted a proposal to the Department of Environmental Quality for one of the properties in West Monroe.

Polestar is known mainly for building Walmart stores.

A total of four grocery stores are planning to built in the twin cities. Rumors have been flying about the possibility that Walmart Neighborhood Market is what's coming to the Twin Cities.

However, no one from West Monroe or the city of Monroe will confirm because of confidentiality agreements.

That doesn't mean it is necessarily a secret. Monroe councilman Ray Armstrong has an idea who will be building in Monroe.

"I don't know, the word is its going to be a walmart neighborhood market," says Armstrong.   "Both of them seem to be from the same developer, so that is what the indication is, it's a Walmart Neighborhood Market."

The meeting at City Hall begins at 6:00 PM
