Walmart seeks additional hours for Black Friday

A public hearing for an additional seven hours for Walmart will be heard at the Chesterfield County Planning Commission during its meeting next Tuesday, October 18. 

Walmart, located at Iron Bridge Road, is seeking the ability to stay open the additional hours on Thanksgiving night and into the day of Black Friday for reasons of traffic control and avoiding long lines during their morning opening on Black Friday.  In the application, management stated, “We experience hundreds of customers waiting outside our facility in line to shop because we are not open overnight.”  Presently the hours of operation are 6 a.m. until 11 p.m.  The public hearing is a comment period on the request for Walmart to be open from 6 a.m. Thanksgiving morning until 11 p.m. Friday at the regular closing time.  

Three public hearings will be held during the afternoon work session at 3 p.m.; Case Number 11PWO199 in the Bermuda Magisterial District.
