A redevelopment kick-off event was held this morning to celebrate the start of construction work to convert the former Lowe’s store at 6140 W. Brown Deer Road in Brown Deer into a 140,000-square-foot Walmart store.
The store will have a full grocery department general merchandise.
“We look forward to better serving our North Shore customers with more convenient access to a wide variety of merchandise and groceries,” said Mitch Cox, Walmart regional general manager.
There will be 300 full and part time employees that work at the store.
The building has been vacant since the Lowe’s store closed in 2011.
