I posted an update in January that Mayor Bob Runde announced during a council meeting that the Tega Cay, SC Wal-Mart is scheduled to open March 17, 2008. I took a look at the Wal-Mart’s store opening website and did not find an update. One of my Tega Cay sources told me this week that he was at the Wal-Mart at the beginning of the week. The fixtures were recently installed but he did not see merchandise yet. He was told Wal-Mart is still shooting for the March open date. I took a picture of the new store front in the end of January 2008. The store front is definitely unique and looks like many small stores instead of one large store.
Many of us have been complaining recently about the increased traffic congestion especially during rush hours on Highway 160. I’ll bet we will have more traffic complaints once the Wal-Mart opens. That’s the price we pay for progress.
