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.
