Well in the City of Beebe booklet mailed out today, the mayor confirmed and 156,000 square foot Wal-Mart Supercenter being built on Center Street. It will have a pharmacy, tire center, garden center, and full grocery. Nothing said though about the other things that are rumored on here. The construction will be started around the July August time frame.

I will be glad to see it come, especially if it puts Knights out. But I cannot imagine the traffic nightmare its going to create in that location.
no way

You just don't get it do you Mike? If you will do some checking Oh lets say milage between the walmarts you speak of. Ok lets use Newport for example. What is the closest Walmart store to Newport? Searcy? Batesville? More than 10 miles between them? I know it might be a stran on your Mike but please follow me here. The closest Walmart from Newport is Batesville,or Searcy. See the space in between?? OK I hope your still with me Mr Mike because it really gets hard for you from here on. Cabot is what we call at the Wal-Mart corp office is a med size town,Just a little over 10,000 maybe. So it gets a Wal-Mart Super Center. Now Beebe is how many miles away? and what is the pop of that town? So do you really think we are going to put a store in a small town like Beebe when a Super Center is less that 10 miles from it? Do you think the local people of Beebe can honestly support a local Wal-Mart? I think everyday Mr Mike, that is what Walmart corp pays me to do every week. So remain nice when I say this to you Mr Mike. Think before you talk because you have far less education than I do my friend. I have a business degree and have worked with Walmart for the last 8 years doing just this. Everyday we figure, study, and plan where to put new stores and believe me when I say this! Beebe will not be getting a WAl-Mart Store. Now Mr Mike Who's ass is the blackest? Let us people who have the real brains to the job and you just continue playing with you ball and jacks. And let the big boy and girls alone to do there jobs.
us sure like to run that mouth so eat them words when construction begins i also work for wal mart lol

I just wanted to comment to Donna Stackhouse. If you are truly a walmart employee, it looks like you got left out of the loop. Because Beebe is getting a Wal-Mart. Also, if you were my employee you would be terminated on the spot for your rude, know it all attitude.
i can tell by her attitude she has no idea what she is talking about and no she definitely does not work for wal mart but i do by the way and yes its coming into beebe soon

Walmart is going to be on center street next to tire town and in response to the person who said that it's is that same street at hwy 64, you are wrong. Also to the person who said Walmart hires people only 18 and older, you are also wrong. They hire 16 and older, minors can only work 5 hrs per day to a certain max per week and cannot work past 10 pm. Get your facts straight people. But I would like to add that I don't think Walmart is a good idea for this town either. It's not that hard to drive 15 mins in either direction to get what you need. Plus this is going to make traffic hell. Hopefully they do something about the roads and traffic, otherwise this is going to be a disaster
at our store meeting we was all told there is one coming to beebe

First: it's not my opinion, it's a fact from one of the "big dogs" in loss prevention at walmart.
Second: common sense should tell you that walmart wouldn't build on a 2 lane highway beside a floodplain. On the other side of the freeway on 64...MAYBE
Get over yourself and stop thinking you know everything..you don't
the searcy supercenter is one a two land highway race street matter of fact

Really? Retarded? I'm college educated and a business professional with over 10 years of high level experience. Your eloquent command of the English language, however, is fully illustrated by your ability to string two words together in what amounts to a 3rd grade playground taunt.
I must assume by your knee jerk response that you are likely a faithful Knight's employee. While I commend your loyalty to your employer & the fact that you are willing to work for a living, I must say your two word discussion does not help their reputation.
The Knights in Beebe consistently charges the highest prices that they can, higher even than Cabot where they have competition, & must fall in line with other stores to compete.
They are also notorious for putting expired food on the shelfs, usually at full price until a customer complains. Then just marking it down as a sale item. I once went to buy breakfast sausage & every package of every brand on the shelf was out of date. I reported it to the manager, & the next day, it was all still on the shelf. With the warehouse located behind the store, there is no excuse for that.
The store is always dirty & dingy looking, & after knowing many employees over the years, it is a well known fact that it is not a good employer.
I hope that competition might push the Beebe Knights to bring itself up to the standards that yhe town deserves. If not, I hope they close their doors.
Simple as that.

People who where naysayers and said that they absolutely positively knew without a doubt that there was no Walmart coming to Beebe...suck it..,

BEEBE, Ark.(KTHV)- A Walmart Supercenter is headed for Beebe, creating hundreds of jobs.

According to a Walmart spokesperson, construction is set to begin in late summer of this year, and by the middle of 2013, Beebe will be home to that which will create 300 jobs for Arkansans.

The site of the new store will be on West Center St. near Commerce Place. THV's Max Seigle is in Beebe this evening, speaking with city leaders and business owners.
