The new Wal-Mart Supercenter being constructed in Mahoning Township is one of the largest in the corporation's formats.
It will have 204,000 square feet. The current Mahoning Wal-Mart has 98,000 square feet and the Hometown Schuylkill County store has 155,000 square feet.
Details about the new Wal-Mart, tentatively scheduled to open Oct. 13, were presented to the Lehighton Council of the Carbon County Chamber of Commerce by store manager Girvin Janicki.
The meeting was held at the Beacon Drive-In, Lehighton, with more than 30 members attending.
