Walmart to anchor Shoppes
continued Walmart was recently announced as the anchor store at The Shoppes, which was formerly known as the Latham Circle Mall. The company is currently in the process of getting its building permits.
Walmart is planning to construct a supercenter, which will include a grocery store. The Walmart in Latham Farms will close, and the employees will move to the new store.
Colonie Supervisor Paula Mahan said the move will fill a need that Walmart patrons had been requesting.
“That’s what everybody wanted at the old location. They wanted them to sell the food, and they could only sell things. So they got a variance last year to be able to sell groceries,” said Mahan. “It will be the anchor store so there will be some other stores around it. Anything there would be better than what’s there.”
