Wal-Mart May be Coming to Tega Cay

(September 21, 2004) Developers hoping to build a 200,000 square-foot Wal-Mart Supercenter  near the intersection of SC Highway 160 and Gold Hill Road continue to negotiate with Tega Cay officials. Developers need Tega Cay to agree to annex 15 acres at the store site, and Tega Cay is asking for signage restrictions, anti-crime measures, road improvements, and other concessions before they will agree to the annexation. Significant opposition exists among area residents, and the town is adding the requirements to make the store more acceptable to the community.

The new Wal-Mart would be about one mile south of the North Carolina state line and about three miles south of a similar-sized store planned for the intersection of Highways 49 and 160 in Steele Creek.
