U.S. 19 N Wal-Mart to open Sept. 24
The Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market at 6900 U.S. 19 N is scheduled to open Sept. 24. Company officials gave an incorrect date in a story earlier this week. The Neighborhood Market will be the first in Pinellas County. It will be one of three groceries in a strip about a mile long along U.S. 19 N. The other two are the Wal-Mart Supercenter, which has been open for several years, and an Aldi, a German-based discount store.
