We may have another grocery shopping option soon in Tyler.

Right now the site of the old Albertsons store at Troup Highway and Loop 323 in East Tyler is still vacant.

But that may change soon. Who's moving in?

The City of Tyler says Walmart Neighborhood Market has applied for a permit at that location, and it's under consideration now. The permit would have to be approved before the hammers could start swinging, and it hasn't been announced yet exactly how long the approval process may take.

The Tyler Morning Telegraph has more of the story today.

The Walmart Neighborhood Markets are the smaller versions of the big Supercenters, and they only carry groceries.
