Walmart Opens


The newest retailer in our area opened its doors last Wednesday morning to a sea of eager shoppers. Walmart, located in the Summerlin Square Shopping Plaza that at one time held a Winn-Dixie supermarket and other stores, has been working to open a store at the busy corner of Summerlin and San Carlos Blvd for several years. The Fort Myers Beach Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon cutting prior to the official opening, which included $6,000 in donations to local non-profit groups and a welcome by Mayor Anita Cereceda and Fort Myers Beach Chamber President Bud Nocera.
