WARMINSTER — After a protracted two-year effort that included skirmishes with private citizens, unions, and other business owners, Wal-Mart is coming to town.
Construction on the 170,000-square-foot store on Street Road near Jacksonville Road began Monday.
The owners of neighboring Center Point Place Shopping Center had filed suit against the township, saying that Wal-Mart was given special zoning variances that Center Point had been denied.
According to Wal-Mart attorney Jordan Warshaw, the suit has since been dropped. "We were able to convince them that it wasn't in their best interest to press on," he said.
