CHANDLER, AZ-Retail giant Wal-Mart has won approval from the city’s planning and zoning commission to locate a “supercenter” on a 60-acre parcel, ending the retailer’s three-year battle with the city over the store’s location.

In a recent unanimous vote, planning officials approved Wal-Mart’s plan to build a “supercenter” at Arizona and Pecos Road on a site straddling the future Santan Freeway. Plans for the site also include a Sam’s Club along with several smaller retailers and restaurants. Final approval of those plans is expected to come from city council at a Dec. 16 meeting. The store would be the first “supercenter” for Wal-Mart in Chandler, which also has a Wal-Mart located at Alma School and Warner roads.
