Walmart shows interest in Ashburn

ASHBURN, GA (WALB) - WALB has learned that Walmart is interested in building a Walmart "Express" in Ashburn.

We have confirmed with Turner County officials that environmental studies are underway, with the idea of putting the smaller version of a Walmart store near the intersection of Highway 112 and Highway 41.

This would be near Ashburn's trademark red caboose, entering town from the west.

The new store would have a pharmacy and a gas station.

Walmart just opened a new store in Sylvester last week.
