Wal-Mart plans to remodel its West Manchester Mall store, 1800 Loucks Road, West Manchester Township, by August, widening aisles, installing new shelves and signs and implementing a "bright interior paint scheme," according to the company.

The store plans to stay open throughout the renovation, Wal-Mart said, completing most construction during overnight hours.

Wal-Mart plans to renovate 80 percent of its stores during the next five years, based on feedback from customers, said Elizabeth Vollmer, a spokeswoman for the company.

The company renovated Walmarts in Springettsbury Township, 2801 E. Market St., and Shrewsbury Township, 698 Shrewsbury Commons Ave., last year.

The West Manchester Mall's Walmart plans to hire 75 people to help remodel the store, the company said.

Another retailer, Kohl's, plans to open in the West Manchester Mall at the site of the former Value City, the company said.

A sign in the mall says its grand opening is in September.

Last week Kohl's advertised for jobs, mostly full-time positions, including sale specialists and area supervisors.
