Rumors turn to facts: Wal-Mart grocery stores coming to Lanier Plaza, Lanier Commons
Demolition crews knock down the old Lanier Plaza on Thompson Bridge Road to make way for a Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market to be built on the site.
The guessing game is over. After months of rumor and speculation, Wal-Mart announced Thursday it will be moving into the Lanier Plaza and Lanier Commons shopping centers in Gainesville. Wal-Mart plans to open its Neighborhood Market grocery stores, a smaller version of the megabox retailer, at the two locations in early 2015.
