Plans for a Wal-Mart Supercenter in eastern Lincoln County will be revised after engineers for the retail giant withdrew the current proposal Tuesday. Partly in response to concerns raised by nearby residents, the new development proposal will be presented to county commissioners at a public hearing Oct. 3.

"It will be a better plan for everybody," said Tim Campbell of AC&S Engineering and Surveying, Wal-Mart's engineering firm.

Regarding traffic congestion, the store's appearance and other concerns expressed by residents, Campbell said the new proposal will address them "as much as we can."

"We didn't address everything," he said, "but I think we've addressed the major issues."

Commissioners were scheduled to vote Sept. 12 on the original rezoning request, which proposed a Supercenter on N.C. 73 between the existing N.C. 16 and the new, four-lane N.C. 16 being built to the west.

The super walmart on mount holly-huntersville road isnt 24 hours anymore, normal store hours are now from 7am - 9pm. I suppose business for them has not been as good as they have anticipated.

The Supercenter in Laurinburg closes at 10 or 11, but it seems to be doing okay business-wise, maybe the night crowd drops off signifigantly at Mount Holly-Huntersville Road.

I found an image of the current Lincolnton Wal-Mart on Matthews Construction's website. It is the most dated Wal-Mart store i've ever seen

Wal-Mart Discount City. Totally old school :thumbsup:

I don't understand this location as there isn't much there and as you mention there is another Walmart not that far away in Mecklenburg. Lincoln county was very remiss for approving this development.

Maybe, but Lincolnton is about 20 miles from this location. I would think they would have had better success at putting the new store closer to Hwy 321. There are people living in Denver, but this is mostly the western Lake crowd and I'm not sure how many will go to walmart to shop. (though they do have cheap groceries)
