Wal-Mart set to break ground on controversial Roseville store

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. now owns a 14-acre site in Roseville, the Business Journal reports. The transaction clears the way for the retailer to begin building its proposed 160,000-square-foot store in the Twin Lakes neighborhood.

Despite concerns from local residents, the Roseville City Council voted 3-2 last summer to give the project final approval, the Roseville Patch reports.

The Arkansas-based discount giant has already applied for a construction permit and could break ground sometime next month.

Wal-Mart also has plans to build new stores in Cottage Grove and Andover as well as a distribution center in Mankato that will employ 300 workers.

The big-box retailer already has more outlets in Minnesota than its Minneapolis-based rival Target.
