News Ten has learned Wal-Mart has filed an application with Meridian Township to add additional square footage on to its current store.

The retail giant wants to make the store into a Wal-Mart Supercenter. Seventy-five thousand square feet would be built to house a grocery store and a drive thru window for its pharmacy.

A site plan submitted by Wal-Mart was sent back for revisions because it didn't meet some of Meridian Township's ordinances. Once a new site plan is submitted a public hearing on the proposed expansion will be scheduled.

This follows years of legal ups and downs to even build a Wal-Mart in Meridian Township.

According to Wal-Mart's website, there are 41 Wal-Mart Supercenters in Michigan. One in St. Johns just opened last week.
