It looks like the former Wal-mart in Lockport will have a new tenant very soon!

According to the Buffalo News,  Runnings a Home, Farm, and Outdoor store will soon move into the old Wal-Mart building in Lockport.

It will become the first Runnings store to open in the Buffalo area. Currently, the company has stores in Brockport and Canandaigua, NY.

The store is expected to employ around 75 people and will open in early 2019.

Company spokesman Dennis Jensen told the newspaper that  "We have a history of taking over vacant stores,"

This store would become the 45th location for Runnings in the United States.
