Two NEW supersized Walmart stores being built in Murfreesboro and now ONE is being built in LaVergne

“We got it!” exclaimed Mayor Senna Mosley in announcing today that a major shopping development is coming to La Vergne.  “It is with extreme pleasure that I announce that Walmart has made the decision to build a store here in La Vergne.”

The Planning Commission will vote at its March 25 meeting on subdividing 45.15 acres at the corner of Murfreesboro Road and Fergus Road, currently zoned C-2 commercial, into three lots for the Walmart Commercial Center Subdivision. After this vote, the retailer will present a site plan for the new facility for approval by the Planning Commission.

“Walmart will fit perfectly into this commercial area, but more importantly we are now giving our citizens shopping choices,” said Mayor Mosley. “I am elated that La Vergne will now have options to shop for clothes, books, shoes, and more without having to leave the city.”

The Economic Development team consists of Mayor Mosley, Alderman Tom Broeker, Alderman Sherry Green, City Planner Kristin Costanzo, Public Information Officer Kathy Tyson, City Engineer Kyle Brown, and the Economic Development Advisory Committee.

“My economic development team and I have worked tirelessly for the last three years to attract Walmart. This is one of my proudest moments to say that through our determination and love for this city, we got it,” said Mayor Mosley.

As a result of Walmart locating to La Vergne, about 400 jobs will be added to the local economy and the sales tax revenue is expected to significantly impact the city budget.  Additional store and restaurant announcements are anticipated in the near future, as well.

“It has been a pleasure to work with La Vergne over the last year,” said Ray Glover, Walmart Real Estate Director.   “Walmart is excited for the opportunity to serve the people of La Vergne. We are thankful for the vision of Mayor Senna Mosley, to bring the people of La Vergne an opportunity to save money so they can live better.”
