The construction site of the new Walmart is proceeding as you can see from the W. Center Street vantage point.

Driving by the construction site of Walmart on W. Center Street, area residents can see the progress of the walls coming up. Construction progress is coming along - however slowly it may seem. The opening date has not been announced at this point but Mayor Mike Robertson said a Walmart official told him last week that they were looking at opening in late July or early August 2013.

With the opening of Walmart, it will be a major change in the way Beebe residents shop for all sorts of products that they have had to drive to Cabot or Searcy to purchase. It will be a time-saving event for most residents who plan to shop at Walmart.
