The Official Unofficial Seminole Heights Blog reported that Wal-Mart plans to build a new store in Seminole Heights.
CL learned about the plan after business hours, so we were unable to confirm the fact with City of Tampa officials.
The blogger wrote that the retail giant has purchased the property at 1720 E. Hillsborough Ave., which previously housed an auto dealer.
Assuming the report is accurate, we're curious to take the temperature of the neighborhood about this new store.
Last summer, many neighbors reacted negatively to the announcement of a Family Dollar Store that would be constructed on Florida Avenue. Their complaints ultimately went for naught as the store is scheduled to open later this year.
