Walmart Considering New Store in Hanson

City officials say the company may put up a store near the Pennyrile Parkway.
Walmart could be coming to another western Kentucky town in the coming years.

Hanson city officials say the company's looking at a 25 acre site for a new store just off the Pennyrile Parkway. The store would be located behind the Vanity Fair Outlet Mall and be 7 miles from it's nearest store in Madisonville. City officials say if the store is built, it can bring more business into town.

"You're going to have other businesses that will come, want to be close to Walmart," says Hanson City Commissioner Mickey DeMoss. "So, Walmart can generate a tax base for the city."

A public hearing on plans for a new store is scheduled for September 11th at 7:00 PM at Hanson City Hall.
