• Wal-Mart seeks move into McCandless


    MCCANDLESS, Pa. - The nation's largest employer could be expanding into McCandless.

    On Tuesday, Wal-Mart Stores Inc.'s traffic, engineering and architectural representatives presented the company's plans to build a 150,000-square-foot store to the McCandless Planning Commission, which voted 6-0, with Dr. James Childress absent, to recommend that council approve land development and site consolidation plans. Council could vote on the matter on July 28.

    The Bentonville, Ark.-based retailer wants to develop the project on 23 acres in a shopping center on Blazier Drive, between Ingomar and McKnight roads. Wal-Mart plans to buy the property and demolish several of the buildings, representatives said. A movie theater is for sale, but that is not part of Wal-Mart's plans.

    The proposed supercenter would include a grocery store, auto center and drive-through pharmacy, company representatives said.
