OSWEGO, NY – Oswego Mayor Randy Bateman has announced that Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., will be expanding the current store on Route 104 East in Oswego, to allow inclusion of general merchandise and a full-service grocery store under one roof.
There will also be a new city street, Eugene Saloga Drive, between the existing Staples and Dollar Tree stores, which will allow a new traffic signal on Route 104.
“My administration has worked diligently with Wal-Mart officials and the New York State Department of Transportation to bring this project to fruition. Although the project took longer than anticipated, it will certainly be a welcome addition to the local economy, and it will add a great deal to our sales tax revenue for the city of Oswego,” he said. “As always, we encourage our residents to support our local businesses.”
Oswego residents are excited about the Wal-Mart expansion, which will begin this month, and the city appreciates Wal-Mart’s further investment in the community, the mayor added.
