Walmart has applied for a permit to begin work on Hayden Meadows store in Portland.
The permit, for the property located at 1123 N. Hayden Meadows Drive, calls for demolishing to existing retail buildings and erecting a 90,000-square-foot store that will include a grocery department. That's smaller than the chain's supercenters, which average about 150,000 square feet.
