"Thank You For Shopping Lehighton Wal-Mart" is one of the last remembrances left of the former Wal-Mart store along SR443 in Mahoning Township. The sign, which graced the interior front wall above the main entrance of the store thanking area shoppers, is all that is left of a structure that's time has come. Demolition crews have been chipping away at the building for a month, removing the roof and its structure from within. The front and two side masonry walls will be the next to fall, making way for a new Lowe's Home Improvement Center.
One last thank you
