Bye bye, Big Lots. So long, Hancock Fabrics.

As Selig Enterprises begins construction of a Wal-Mart at the site, older tenants are pulling out, according to Tomorrow’s News Today.

Tomorrow’s News says Big Lots will be closing its doors, despite Selig telling the store’s owners they would be welcome at the shopping center.

“According to a store employee, there are currently no plans to reopen the store elsewhere in the future,” Tomorrow’s News says. Hancock Fabrics will close in January and reopen later that month in Tucker.

Selig plans to have the project completed by this summer and ready for a fall 2015 opening. The Suburban Plaza shopping center is currently in the Decatur Annexation Master Plan.

    I want to point out that WalMart almost certainly chose that location because it was unincorporated and it is a part of their business model to build at the edge to cities to avoid paying taxes but still have proximity to customers. So now it likely will be annexed, and they’ll have to pay municipal taxes. It’ll be interesting to see their response, if any. They have to be annoyed
