PLANT CITY – The makings for a margarita will soon be as close as the local Walmart.

The retailer has filed plans at City Hall to build a 3,905-square-foot liquor store on the south side of its supercenter at 2602 James L. Redman Parkway.

The liquor store, which will have its own entrance, will increase the store’s size to slightly more than 200,000 square-feet. The store plans and Walmart’s request for the zoning it needs for alcohol sales are under routine staff review.

Walmart spokeswoman Amanda Henneberg said there’s no timetable for when the liquor store might open. She said in an email that Walmart is adding liquor sales at the request of customers.

“We are seeking the license in response to the customer feedback we have received – this is something that our customers want,” she wrote.

Both the plans and zoning change require only staff review by the city planning and zoning department.
