Lots of people have been wondering when the new Walmart location in Leesburg’s Compass Creek development is going to open. It was originally targeted for this spring, but got pushed back. Now, we apparently have an answer.

We haven’t seen any official announcement yet, but staff members at the current Leesburg Walmart on Edwards Ferry Road have started telling customers that May 22 is the opening date for the new store. The store will be vacating the Edwards Ferry Road location.

Most area residents have seen the mammoth new Walmart store that has gone up in Compass Creek just off 267. The center even has its own exit off the tollway.

Walmart will be joined by the ION International Training Center and an At Home home decor superstore. There will also be a gas station and other retail.
