Walmart proposes Chico expansion

Jul 17, 2015 2:31 PM by News Staff

The Chico Walmart is once again trying to expand its Forest Avenue store.

Six years ago the Chico City Council rejected Walmart's proposed expansion, but the company has re-submitted plans to the city's planning staff.

The project is estimated to create 85 new jobs and grow the store's size by 50 percent.

New additions compared to the plan submitted in 2009 include a gas station and a grocery pickup program that would allow customers to get their items without getting out of the car.

There is no timeline on when the plan will be reviewed or when construction could begin.
