Developer files Wal-Mart application in Derby

Posted: Updated:
DERBY, Vt. (AP) - A developer has filed an application to develop a Wal-Mart in Derby, Vermont.

The $16.75 million store is expected to create 260 jobs. It would open in November 2015 and be near the Newport City line.

The Caledonian Record reports Jeff Davis of Burlington, of Shattuck Hill Investments, filed the application Thursday with the zoning administrator's office.

The application culminates over a decade of effort by town and regional officials to lure a new department store to the area after Ames closed in 2002.

Voters in Derby and Newport City have approved of the Wal-Mart.
