PORT ANGELES — More than three years after it closed its doors, the former Port Angeles Walmart building is still on the market.

The Arkansas-based corporation is asking $2.95 million for the 129,813-square-foot building and 24-acre parcel at 3500 E. U.S. Highway 101 just east of the city limit.

It has been listed at the same price for several months.

The Realtor — Cody Persyn of SRS Real Estate Partners in Houston — has said he “can't comment to the press about anything.”

The appraised value of the property is $3.79 million, according to Clallam County assessor's records.

In October 2010, Walmart moved into a larger Supercenter at 3471 E. Kolonels Way, just across the highway from the old box store.

At 181,000 square feet, the new Walmart is about 51,000 square feet larger than its predecessor.

The former Walmart building was completed in 1996 and remodeled in 2003.

Divided sales tax

Sales tax generated by any new business that opens in the old building would be divided evenly between Clallam County and the city of Port Angeles, County Administrator Jim Jones said.

The building is located within the Port Angeles Urban Growth Area.

Jones said it would be “significant if anything happened” to the old building, particularly if new jobs were created.

“It would be stunning,” he added.

The city in 2008 extended the sewer collector from its sewage treatment plant at Ennis Creek to the site of the Walmart Supercenter.

Before the Supercenter was built, the property housed an 87,000-square-foot Kmart.
