WHITE PLAINS—In a surprise move, Walmart has announced plans to close its 180,000-square-foot Downtown White Plains location by Aug. 10.

The mega discount retailer had operated the location since it opened in 2006 and replaced a Sear’s department store, which had relocated to the nearby Galleria Mall. The 275,169-square-foot building at 275 Main St. which also includes a Burlington department store and a six-story parking garage, is owned by Ivy Realty, which has offices in Greenwich, CT, Montvale, NJ and Fort Lauderdale, FL. Ivy also owns the adjoining twin-tower 712,131-square-foot White Plains Plaza office complex. A spokesperson for Ivy Realty said the firm had no comment on Walmart’s decision and did not provide any information on the retailer’s remaining lease term at the property.
