Walmart proposed for Clark Road & Honore in Sarasota
By Justine Griffin, Herald-Tribune
The Sarasota County Development Review Committee will discuss a plan for Walmart to open a new store at Clark Road and Honore Avenue, according to the committee’s March 5 agenda.
The Walmart store, which is likely a Walmart Neighborhood Market, is proposed to open at 5401 Palmer Crossing Circle, in the former shell of a Sweetbay Supermarket. The grocery space in the shopping plaza, which also houses a Bealls department store and OfficeMax, has been vacant for years.
The neighborhood market formats are smaller than traditional Walmarts and offer food, pharmacy and beauty departments similar to other supermarket chains like Publix and Winn-Dixie.
