Walmart Opening Soon at 441 and Palmetto Park

We were driving by the incoming Walmart today and noticed signs were up. So, unlike the Cadillac in front of us, we made a safe U-turn and then we drove into the parking lot and took a look around.
If you like video, here’s a quick summary. Extra photos and comments are below.

The parking lot has quite a few cars in it and there’s a flurry of work going on to get the store ready. Here’s the front of the main store entrance:
And here’s an angled shot from the southern end looking toward Lowe’s in the background:
Last, here’s a picture showing the sign (red arrow points to it) on the southwest corner of 441 and Palmetto Park Road.
We previously spoke to the store manager, David Bonutti when we wrote about the Walmart temporary hiring center. He then said they hoped to open about six weeks after they moved onto the property. We think they got in yesterday, August 4th. So that suggests they’ll be open for business in mid-September.
The driveways are open on both Palmetto Park across from Lowe’s, and on 441 just south of Palmetto Park. Getting in the parking lot looks easy. Getting out is fine if you’re going east or north. If you want to go west or south, it’s going to be more of a hassle getting out of the 441 exit, depending on traffic.

Update on Westwinds of Boca

We have reported on the project at Westwinds of Boca. This is the construction at the southeast corner of Glades & 441, in the same plaza as Home Depot and Publix. Our most recent update was about two weeks ago.
Well now we have something more reliable. We called the property management company and they got back to us. What’s going in is a small multi-tenant building with just short of 17,000 square feet. There will be five tenants. Two have executed contracts – VisionWorks and European Wax. There are three others but those contracts have not been completed yet. Rumors of a steakhouse or a drug store are apparently incorrect.
What they’re doing is not as big as we thought it would be. The Walgreens being built in Shadowood will be about the same size and that’s just one store.
Since people keep asking us, we asked and got an answer. There is nothing happening yet with the old Denny’s in Westwinds. They are working on finding a new tenant.
