The developers behind the Renaissance Square shopping center on Berry and Mitchell Streets in south Fort Worth announced 10 retailers who will set up shop with Walmart.
People living in south Fort Worth won't have to travel to do basic shopping.
The developer of the Renaissance Square shopping center announced 10 retailers who will set up shop with Walmart.
The enter will be built near Highway 287 between on Berry Street and Mitchell Boulevard.
The city said southeast Fort Worth neighborhoods have gone too long without basic needs such as a grocery store. Many residents go to other cities to shop, which costs Fort Worth sales tax dollars, the city said.
Audelia Hernandez, who lives about a block away from the development, is looking forward to the shopping center.
"It's a blessing," she said. "It's great. I need it, and I guess everyone else does, too."
Hernandez relies on her family to drive her places but will be able to do some shopping on her own when the development opens.
"It's walking distance," she said. "I can walk -- a little exercise for myself."
The developer plans on breaking ground this spring with an opening in January of next year.
