Walmart has dropped plans for a store in Zionsville, a company spokesman said. The 23 acres owned by Walmart on Michigan Road is up for sale, listed at $7.5 million.
“After much deliberation and consideration of several business factors, we have decided not to pursue development of a new store in Zionsville,” Walmart spokesperson Anne Hatfield said. “Since our original proposal, our customers’ needs have evolved and we are focused on improving our existing stores to meet the changing needs of our customers as well as new innovations to simplify how our customers shop.”
The Zionsville Walmart has been on the radar for more than a decade. Walmart first proposed the building just south of Michigan Road and Bennett Parkway in 2005 but the Zionsville Plan Commission denied the project – twice. More details available in the Lebanon Reporter.
