HENRICO COUNTY, Va. (RichmondBizSense.com) – The world’s biggest retailer may have its sights set on a second Richmond grocery store.

Plans have been filed in Henrico County for a new grocery store at the site of a dilapidated motel at 5221 Brook Road, and the documents appear to be for the area’s second planned Walmart Neighborhood Market.

Submitted by Denver-based MVG Development, site plan documents call for a 42,000-square foot store and gas station.

The documents do not specifically mention the Neighborhood Market concept, but a drawing in the package submitted to Henrico County’s planning department bears the Walmart logo.

The store’s footprint described in the plan matches the forthcoming Neighborhood Market at Chesterfield’s Meadowbrook Shopping Center.

    They had better have a huge loss prevention staff. They will steal anything not nailed down there.

    What’s the point of putting it there when there is one right up the road. Why can’t they put one in the east end?

      I know how you feel,Shanice. I lived in Highland Springs up until 3 years ago. I hated having to drive all the way to Mechanicsville Pke to get to Walmart. Now I live about a mile from the one on Brook Rd. I also wonder why they are wanting to put one in at that old busted down motel which is only less than 5 minutes drive from the one near my house. but then again there is a Food Lion in that area in additon to one in the near area to that walmart,so who knows? busline maybe?
