San Leandro City Manager John Jermanis told business leaders at a luncheon today that the former Target lot at Hesperian and Lewelling boulevards will soon get a new tenant — Wal-Mart.
He alluded to the news earlier this week at Monday’s council meeting, but today’s announcement confirms it.
The vacant building has been family-owned for years, Jermanis said, and the family has always chosen big-box stores to inhabit it.
Now that Wal-Mart is moving in, that makes two stores in the city. The other one is at Westgate Shopping Center on Davis Street near Interstate 880.
