On Wednesday, add one more store — in San Leandro — to Wal-Mart’s estimated 33 superstores, 139 discount and general merchandise stores, 36 Sam’s clubs and seven distribution centers in California.
At 120,186 square feet, the new Wal-Mart at 15555 Hesperian Blvd. — next to an In N Out Burger, just off Interstate 880 — falls in the discount and general merchandise store size. Superstores size in at 185,000 square feet and larger.
Three other Wal-Marts are within two to nine miles, and all also off I-880: at the Westgate Shopping Center on Davis Street in San Leandro; on Hegenberger Road in Oakland; and off Alvarado-Niles Road in Union City.
Do you plan to shop at the new Wal-Mart store? What other types of retail stores and businesses should San Leandro try to attract?
