Walker Furniture Closes Escrow on Land for a Second Store Location
Walker Furniture closed escrow March 16, on approximately 14-acres of land in southwest Las Vegas off the 215 Beltway and Sunset Road next to Ikea. Plans are to build a second furniture super store in the valley.
“People have been asking us for years to build another store in addition to our main location on MLK where business is thriving,” said Larry Alterwitz, CEO for Walker Furniture. “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.”
Plans still being formulated will call for approximately 200,000 square feet of development with 150,000 square feet for Walker Furniture and the remaining 50,000 square feet for additional retail and dining. Breaking ground and the beginning of construction are forecast to begin later in the year. More information will be released as plans are confirmed.
