Cochran City Manager Ray Gibson confirms Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is in talks with the city about bringing a retail store to Cochran.
The company is said to be considering a store location on Dykes Street (Hwy 26) and Hwy 87, behind the Shell gas station.
Gibson says a development plan hasn't been submitted but believes they're on the way and that they'll have something on paper next week.
Last March the city's office was contacted by an Atlanta attorney and it wasn't until June they knew which company, Gibson says.
Gibson hopes to be able to announce something official next week to the community.
