Ground breaks for Wal-Mart shopping center in York County

Dirt is moving on a long-awaited project in Newberry Township,
York County.

Dirt is moving on a long-awaited project in Newberry Township,
York County.

Missouri-based Pacific Development began site work on
Newberry Pointe about three weeks ago, said Al Mers, a partner in Pacific. The
township approved final plans for the project at the end of 2007, but the
process was delayed as the firm awaited permits from York County
and PennDot.

The site work and a $3.5 million traffic-, road- and
utilities-improvement plan should be complete by April or May of next year,
which is when building construction will begin, Mers said.

The 47-acre shopping center will include an
184,000-square-foot Wal-Mart
Supercenter
and 10-15
stores in a 43,000-square-foot strip mall. Wal-Mart expects to open in February
or March of 2011, Mers said. The center also will have five separate lots, one
of which will be occupied by Rite Aid Corp. Pacific is in the process of
finalizing leases for the project, he said.
