Taylor Chess of the Peterson Cos. tells The Washington Post the plan still requires some county approvals. But he says construction could begin next year with a store opening in 2013. It would be about a mile from National Harbor.

Wal-Mart spokesman Steve Restivo says the company is looking forward to better serving its Prince George's County customers with a new store.

Chess says he expects the store would be a super store with a grocery section.

The Peterson Cos. also recently announced it plans to open a Tanger Outlet Center in 2013 near National Harbor.

Wal-Mart also has proposed four stores for the District of Columbia.
