These commuters, students and families prefer the easy access from their homes, apartments or condos in Tyson’s Corner and McLean, for example.

Creating affordable convenience is one of the hallmarks of any store, and when it comes to upping the ante of a commercial development, there may not be any better “anchor” than Wal-mart. Sun Gazette reports that a new “urban format” Wal-Mart has opened up in Tyson’s Corner, with a celebration that included local residents, politicians and the work of  artist, Robert Cole. The new 79,000 sq. ft. store looks ahead at the upcoming Tysons-Spring Hill Metro Station, giving Silver Line Metro riders the ability to shop while commuting, as well as offering 24/7 hours for residents within the homes surrounding Tyson’s Corner.
