Monday, September 24, 2018
RED BLUFF — The former Walmart building is showing signs of life as construction workers roam the grounds of what will eventually be the new Ross discount department store.
Fences have gone up with construction signs at the former Walmart location in the Red Bluff Shopping Center on Luther at Mill. Workers could be seen entering the building and prepping a new sign on the rear wall.
According to Amanda Jenkins with Tehama County Economic Development, there is no exact date for when the discount department store will open but updates are expected as soon as it is announced.
Community Development Director Scott Friend said the store won’t be taking up the entirety of the former Walmart’s space. Ross will occupy a portion of the building’s square footage.
