Wal-Mart sets Supercenter sights on Livingston

November 5, 2008 

Another Wal-Mart may be coming to a town near you.

Wal-Mart announced today it will applied with the town of Livingston to build a 162,797 square-foot super Walt-Mart store, said a spokesman for the company.

As part of the Blueberry Crossing Development, just off Highway 99, Wal-Mart would be the anchor store for a 317,000 square-foot development, possibly including a hotel, conference center and commercial space, said Wal-Mart spokesman Aaron Rios.

"We are filing an application with the city of Livingston," he said.

The store would employ about 450 people said Rios. Average pay for Wal-Mart employees in Merced County is $11.30 an hour. Along with the plethora of products usually found in Wal-Mart, this location would also have a full-scale grocery store.
