MEDFORD, Ore. — The North Medford Wal-Mart along Highway 62 is re-opening Wednesday.
The store has been closed for almost a year now for remodeling. Sitting between Lowes and Costco, it is going to be another large-scale business on the strip.
Some are concerned it will increase traffic in an already congested area. Others believe the Wal-Mart will help the community, and are glad to see it re-open.
“Actually, it’s convenient because this area is growing so much all the time,” said consumer Lynda Haghan. “So it will be a convenience as far as running by and grabbing a few things. I’ve missed it since it’s been gone.”
Restaurant owners also seem to be welcoming of the new Wal-Mart.The Wal-Mart is set to open September 11.
