You have to watch out for more than falling prices now at the North East Walmart.
The dozen year old store is currently undergoing an $800,000 renovation project, according to Jeff Thorpe Plans Reviewer for the Cecil County Department of Permits and Inspections.
The plans for the renovation were submitted to the county in the spring.
The store, at 75 North East Plaza, will get upgrades to facilitate the "We will shop for you" program. New signs will direct customers to these services. The customer restrooms at both the front and rear of the store will also be remodeled and reconfigured. "They are kind of redesigning the interior and they have a new lighting plan. They are freshening up," said Thorpe.
In other business from Permits and Inspections:
• Permits and Inspections Chief Patrick Conway said in the last 45 days, he's received numerous requests for information. Those who own commercial properties and multi family home complexes are looking to refinance at a lower interest rate. Conway said that is good news. When there is movement with commercial properties, single family home building usually comes behind it. Cecil has recently experienced 30 year lows with single family home construction.
