Cottage Grove Walmart to mark official groundbreaking Wednesday


Construction on the new 180,000-square-foot Walmart on East Point Douglas Road is in full swing.

Just days after the last pieces of the Cottage View Drive-In sign departed, crews moved on site and began razing the ground in preparation for the proposed Shoppes at Cottage View retail center. To celebrate the official groundbreaking, city officials are planning a recognition ceremony at 10 a.m. Wednesday.
