New Wal-Mart Coming to Cedar Park

Retail giant Wal-Mart expects to build another store in Cedar Park on the northwest corner of RM 1431 and Ronald Reagan Blvd.

The 150,000-square-foot store will employ about 300 associates, said Kellie Duhr, director of public affairs and government relations for Wal-Mart.

Wal-Mart has not announced construction dates or a timeline for opening the store, she said. Cedar Park Director of Economic Development Phil Brewer said he is excited Wal-Mart chose Cedar Park as the site for another store.

“It obviously is an economic impact from a tax standpoint, from ad valorem and sales taxes generated,” he said. “Typically your big box stores like this are going to produce something like $80-$100 million in total taxable sales.
