Walmart Supercenter to open Nov. 16

After being in the works for more than a decade, the Walmart Supercenter will have its official opening next week, Nov. 16.

Just across the street from the existing Walmart, the Eastern Sierra Marketplace will also be home to at least two other businesses – presumed to be a restaurant and a gas station.

So far, Tractor Supply is the only business that’s confirmed to move into the current Walmart building once it is empty. According to Ridgecrest Economic Development Manager Gary Parsons, the building will also house two or three other businesses.

The News Review will publish more information as it develops.
