Seattle developer PacLand is turning Beaverton’s Ashley Furniture HomeStore into a Walmart store.

City officials say it should be open in a few months.

According to the project’s development application, PacLand will convert the existing 42,874-square-foot furniture store, which is in the process of closing, into a grocery store. Improvements include interior store remodeling, adding a trash compactor with a screen wall, adding a recycling storage area with a screen wall, upgrading utilities and store lighting, replacing signage, upgrading rooftop equipment and minor grading in the loading area.

“It will be the size of a large New Seasons or small Safeway,” [Beaverton’s community development director Don] Mazziotti added. “They are not modifying the building into a large structure. It’s a third of the size of a Walmart superstore.”
