Wal­mart plans to build new home of­fice

Texarkana Gazette - - STATE -

BEN­TONVILLE, Ark.—Wal­Mart Stores Inc. has an­nounced plans to build a new home of­fice less than 2 miles from its cur­rent head­quar­ters in Ben­tonville, Arkansas.

Wal­mart spokesman Randy Har­grove says the com­pany is in the early plan­ning and de­sign phases of the project, which will take up to seven years.

An es­ti­mated cost of the project has not been de­ter­mined.

The com­pany said its cur­rent oper­a­tions are in more than 20 build­ings and the new head­quar­ters to be built on more than 350 acres will pro­vide more ef­fi­ciency.

Wal­mart, the world’s largest re­tailer, has been in its cur­rent home of­fice since 1971.
