MANDAN, N.D. (AP) — Mandan is getting a Walmart.

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. says it's planning to open a supercenter in North Dakota's sixth-largest city. Spokesman Ryan Irsik says Walmart will submit site and building plans by late February for a 150,000-square-foot store that would employ about 250 people.

Mayor Tim Helbling says the announcement is "a great thing for the city." He says it's important to stop sales tax dollars from "flying across the river" to Bismarck, which has two Walmart supercenters.
