Walmart Supercenter opens at old Crossroads Mall in Largo

Customers were treated to “grand opening cake” and later in the morning Rays player Desmond Jennings came and signed autographs and helped with a ball toss game outside the front of the store. The new supercenter opened at 8 a.m. on the former site of the Crossroads Mall (before that the Bay Area Outlet Mall) at the southeast corner of Roosevelt Boulevard and U.S. 19. The land had been a vacant eyesore for years.
