Wal-Mart to restart Bluebonnet-Burbank plans

Wal-Mart is once again gearing up to build a supercenter at the southeast corner of Bluebonnet Boulevard and Burbank Drive.

The Bentonville, Ark., retailer has filed a permit application with the city-parish to build an $11.1 million, 159,195-square-foot store there, just over four years after it filed for its first permit for the property.

The project was put on hold as the financial crisis crashed the world economy and Wal-Mart scaled back its new store construction nationwide.

Company spokesman Daniel Morales said Thursday the supercenter will employ roughly 300 people after it opens in mid-2014.
