COVINGTON, Louisiana —- (AUGUST 16, 2011) Stirling Properties, the developer of River Chase, officially announces that Sam’s Club is coming to River Chase Shopping Center, the largest open-air retail center in St. Tammany Parish. Sam’s Club closed today on the purchase of a 16.58 acre site for the development of a new, 136,000 square foot store at River Chase. Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., the parent company for Sam’s Club, has committed to build their top of the line prototype building at the River Chase site, which will not resemble any other Sam’s Club in Louisiana.
This new Sam’s Club will be the only one in western St. Tammany and construction on the predominantly stone and brick facade will begin soon as Sam’s has already obtained all the necessary permits to begin. The anticipated opening is scheduled for fall 2012 and is expected to provide 100+ jobs for the area.
