Capital Region Walmart Biggest In United States
I have been here a million times. I go here at least 3 times a week. I know it is big, but never thought it is the biggest in the country.
The Walmart to hold this record is the two-story Walmart Supercenter in Crossgates Commons off of Washington Avenue in Albany. Now you probably are thinking like I am. There is no way if Walmart would build its biggest store in the United States in Albany right? Well, they did when they decided to combine the existing Walmart and the closing Sams Club in 2006.
The store occupies a total of 260,000 square feet of space when the average store has around 187,000. I wonder how many two-story Walmarts there are across the country, that's my next question that I want an answer to. Also maybe taking someone from out of town to Walmart and showing them the mezzanine on the second floor should be a tourist attraction.
