Walmart Coming To Batesville Is Still Up In The Air

March 7, 2014
By

Just a few months ago, the talk around town was a new big box store potentially being built in Batesville. What ever happened to that rumor?

The prospect of Walmart expanding to Batesville sent the community abuzz as residents voiced both support and opposition.

It has remained a topic of conversation, but just that, as officials from the city and Walmart have yet to confirm or deny it.

On Thursday, we verified that Walmart has not purchased property in Batesville. However, the store still has an interest in coming to town, sources confirmed.

WRBI will keep you up-to-date on any new developments.
