Bonus information: Lockers to be installed for easy pick-up, loading

In other Walmart news, plans are under review by the Building and Permit Office for Walmart to construct 10 lockers on the north side of the Bartlesville store that will make it easier for customers to pick up and/or load items that have either been called in, ordered online or purchased using a special check-out center inside the store. The lockers will make it easier for people who either don’t wish to go inside to shop or who want to shop inside but need more convenient loading.

There is a lot of work going on at the old Stage location in Eastland. Do you know what’s going in there?

Rumors are abound that Planet Fitness is locating at the vacant space formerly housing Stage. However, there has not been a permit filed with the City of Bartlesville by Planet Fitness — or any other business — for that location. The only permits issued that apply to the site is a “white box” permit, which means general work not applying to any specific business, and parking lot work.
