"We know that residents in Cornelius and throughout Washington County eagerly await the store’s opening, and we’re committed to making that happen as quickly as possible”, said Wal-Mart spokesperson Jennifer Spall. The public will see demolition of vacant homes on the site shortly. Wal-Mart has joined the Cornelius Chamber of Commerce in anticipation of being a part of the local community.


The vacant homes have since been demolished and leveled. A total of 8 homes, it looks like. All that remains are the landscape and piles of trash and belongings. In addition to grass lands there's piles of gravel to walk on. It was a little sad to walk on really, seeing as it once was the footprint of several family's homes. I was especially touched when I walked into someone's previous garden, of which the mini-plastic fencing was still in place. Well these are the sacrifices other make to make way for growth, expansion, and hopeful prosparity.
