Walker seals land deal for 2nd Las Vegas superstore
March 17, 2017,
LAS VEGAS — Walker Furniture has finalized a deal on about 14 acres of land in southwest Las Vegas, making its plans for a second superstore here official.
On the property, off the Interstate 215 Beltway and Sunset Road next to Ikea, the Top 100 company has plans for an approximately 200,000-square-foot development, it said — 150,000-square-feet for its new showroom and the remaining space carved out for other retail and dining businesses.
“People have been asking us for years to build another store in addition to our main location on MLK where business is thriving,” CEO Larry Alterwitz said in a release. “I feel the city is ripe for another location. The new super store together with our downtown super store will make us ultra-convenient to the whole city.”
