SHERWOOD,Ore. -- A new shopping center is coming to Sherwood.

Sherwood Town Center will become home to a new Walmart supercenter, a bank, restaurants.. medical services and spaces for about 20 retail shops at the corner of Tualatin-Sherwood Road and Langer Farms Parkway. Construction starts June 24th.

Many turned out for a meeting Tuesday night to voice concerns it was a Walmart opening. Some residents said they expected retail development, but opposed a Walmart store.

The city says it has the power to approve what kind of retail moves in, but not which retailer.

Opening is set for some time next year.
