Walmart Corporate Associate, Daniel Morales met with officials from the City of Lamesa, Dawson County, Medical Arts Hospital and Lamesa ISD this morning. Mr. Morales stated that the Lamesa Walmart store will be closing in mid-October and that all inventory will be out of the store by October 31st when their lease is up.  While losing Walmart is unexpected, officials of the above entities believe it is an excellent opportunity to attract new businesses to the City. The Lamesa EDC is actively pursuing business leads to provide similar services and products that Walmart has provided to citizens in our service area. Lamesa public officials, including Letha Stokes, CEO of Medical Arts Hospital, have joined together to form a taskforce to market the City of Lamesa.
