CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Business has been so good in the five years since Wal-Mart opened on Lincoln Way East that the company has decided to double the store's size and add a grocery store and another 200 employees, a company spokesman said Friday.
Keith Morris, speaking from Wal-Mart headquarters in Arkansas, said the company submitted preliminary plans for its expansion to the Guilford Township Supervisors this week. Construction won't begin until next year, officials said.
"We've seen incredible growth in Chambersburg," Morris said. Expanding the current store into a Wal-Mart Supercenter will bring the business' total square feet to nearly 200,000, he said.
