Work starts on Berlin Wal-Mart expansion

Posted: Updated:
BERLIN, Vt. -

Owners of the Berlin Mall broke ground Thursday on a new Wal-Mart expansion.

The mega-chain will be adding a grocery store as part of an 18,000-square-foot addition.

Mall owner Ken Simon says the move should benefit Wal-Mart and its customers. Other retailers should be busier, as well.

"I think they'll be able to draw off the traffic. That's what anchor tenants are supposed to do and I think they, the tenants in the mall, will experience a lot more potential customers," Simon said.

Wal-Mart expects to hire 72 additional employees, bringing the total workforce to nearly 150.

The project is expected to be completed by September.
