After 11 years, 21st & Memorial is getting a grocery store again. A Walmart Neighboorhood Market. Here's the info I found:

  • Property data page for 1939 S Memorial Dr at Tulsa County Assessor site. Shows that Walmart purchased the property in 2016.
http://www.assessor.tulsacounty.org/assessor-property.php?account=R30425931204200&return=close

  • A sewer plug permit (#430121) was recently issued by the City of Tulsa. Generally, a sewer plug is required before demolition, so it appears they will be taking down the building.

  • A commercial building permit application (#422251), with Walmart Neighborhood Market listed on the application, has been submitted to the city. (The address listed on the app is 8127 E 21st St.)

(To look up building permit/application info, go to http://timeline.cityoftulsa.org/Timeline4/PlanReview.aspx and plug in the permit/app #s listed above, or search by address.)

I grew up in '80s and '90s near this intersection and my family's business office is still here as well. There was a grocery store on the NE corner since '85, opening as Skaggs Alpha Beta, briefly rebranding as Jewel Osco in 1991 before being purchased by and changing its name to Albertsons in 1992. Albertsons closed this store along with the one on the NE corner of 31st & Garnett and their pair of Broken Arrow locations in 2006. (They finally left the Oklahoma market altogether in 2007, selling most of their stores to various companies and closing the others that presumably found no buyer.) Since then, this intersection has been fairly dead development-wise, with the exception of a Sonic location opened in early 2009 and a QuikTrip Gen-2 store in 2010, both on pad sites near the former Albertsons property.

I'm actually kind of surprised. With the Walmart Supercenter at 2nd & Memorial and Neighborhood Market locations on the SW corner of 31st & Garnett and at 21st & Yale, I didn't think we'd see another grocery store here ever. The demographics on this side of the city have changed quite a bit since my childhood.

Drove by today and saw heavy equipment demolishing east end of building, which served as Albertson regional offices in 80s/90s.  Wonder if the whole building is coming down. 

I miss Albertsons and even Kmart. Where tge typical Walmart carries 2-3 brands of a particular product, the other two always seemed to have more choices. Probably contributed to downfall.

They took down the entire Homeland at 31st & Harvard, so I'd bet this is a complete nuke and rebuild.  I'm not aware of Wal-Mart re-purposing old buildings.

It's very rare for a Wal-Mart to re-purpose an old building. It's not efficient for them even though they have billions of dollars.

Stopped by there last night after going to Cimmaron Bar just down the street.  The entire building is gone now and debris is cleared.  Looks so strange that way after that building stood there for so long.
