Big R Corporation broke ground last week on their Pueblo West store located at the corner of McCullough and Industrial. The new store will be the Pueblo Company’s 26th location out of a corporate territory that stretches across three states. Chief Operations Officer for Big R, Adam Carroll said he is optimistic for a grand opening date in spring 2017.

“The biggest difference between the Pueblo West store and many of our other locations is design. The Pueblo West building is being designed from the ground up and will feature a hay barn that will facilitate customers purchasing large amounts of feed with the convenience of pulling into the barn to load,” Adam said. “We are excited to invest in Pueblo West and continue to be a part of the greater Pueblo community.”

Big R will provide the Pueblo West community with a unique range of retail services including a full line of sporting goods and apparel, equine supplies, lawn and garden products, and seasonal supplies.

The Pueblo West Metropolitan Board of Directors is committed to an economic development plan focused on providing expanded opportunity for our community while supporting our existing retail establishments. A Big R location in Pueblo West will add convenience to our residents, provide economic growth for our community and align with possible development of land zoned for business in the vicinity of East Industrial and North McCulloch Blvd.

On Wednesday, August 31, Pueblo West Metropolitan District hosted a community meeting at which District staff and Altitude Land Consultants presented a fresh and wastewater master plan for District-owned property in the vicinity of McCulloch and East Industrial and the Airport area. This plan included a preliminary design for land development of these lots as part of water planning process to ensure adequate utilities infrastructure is developed. If developed as designed, the new development in the vicinity of McCulloch and East Industrial would provide substantial new retail stores as well as some new recreational, and residential development. Big R is the first new retail development in this area.
