Cheektowaga's Super Flea, the popular weekend destination of bargain hunters, will soon make way for a Walmart Supercenter.
In written release, Walmart announced that it intends to build on the Walden Avenue site and relinquish its current location near Harlem Road.
“After careful consideration of what site in Cheektowaga worked best for a new Supercenter, we have decided internally that the development of a store at Walden Avenue is a win-win for us and for the community. Walmart is pleased to be able to offer a full range of items for its customers including a full line of groceries, consisting of fresh produce, frozen foods, meat and dairy products, and organic items. We look forward to moving our existing store and adding a full service grocery division to better serve the residents of Cheektowaga” stated William Wertz, Walmart’s Director of Community & Media Relations.
“Walmart has assured me it intends to keep our residents informed of its plans for the new Supercenter, which will be important as they move forward,” stated Cheektowaga Supervisor Mary F. Holtz.
Walmart is planning a community open house for residents to come view plans for the new store. It will be held Monday, October 29 at the Private Leonard Post VFW at 2450 Walden Avenue in Cheektowaga. Residents may stop by anytime between 5:30 p.m. and 8:00 p.m.
It is unclear if, and where, the flea market may relocate.
