An expansion of the Brick Walmart store will add 85 jobs, according to a company spokesman.
The township council on Tuesday night approved a measure that will allow the store to complete indoor construction work during the night time hours by granting a waiver of the township's noise ordinance. The store has already as well as other permits to begin the process of expanding the store by just over 30,000 square feet.
Bill Wertz, a Walmart spokesman, told Brick Patch that the company will expand its current 116,000 square foot general merchandise store to to a 150,000 square foot Walmart Supercenter.
The transition from a traditional store to a Supercenter will add a supermarket and a fast-food restaurant to the location.
"We’ll have a full line of groceries, including meat, fresh produce and deli items; also a garden center pharmacy, vision center and a McDonald’s," Wertz said.
Wert said the project will add 85 jobs and should be completed in spring 2013 barring any unexpected delays.
