New Walmart Proposed at Tesson Ferry, Butler Hill

Get the details on the groceries-only neighborhood market Walmart wants to open in South St. Louis County.
Walmart wants to open its first groceries-only neighborhood market in St. Louis here in South County, on Tesson Ferry Road, just south of Butler Hill Road.

Lawyers for Walmart presented their plan to the St. Louis County Planning Commission recently, saying the store combines a smaller, focused layout with the food prices customers at supercenter Walmarts expect.

Walmart's "neighborhood market" concept focuses on fixing big box ills while maintaining prices, said the retailer's attorney Keith Hazelwood. Since the stores will only sell groceries—including bakery goods, produce, seafood and pet supplies—the markets don't have the same traffic and crowding issues as the superstores (like the one six miles east on Telegraph Road here in Mehlville.)

The market would be within the Mehlville School District, and Hazelwood estimated tax revenues would go up about $50,000 if the store is built. The store would also bring about 100 jobs to the area, Hazelwood said.
