Driving down Back Beach Road (Panama City Beach Parkway or US 98) last week you could smell the fresh scent of pine in the air as logging crews harvested the pine forrest located where the new Pier Park North mall will be located. In fact, by Wednesday, most of the trees were gone and crews are expected to begin de-stumping the ground this week.
Here is a panoramic shot of the site as of Wednesday, November 28, 2012.
Having just reported on the [so far] up to date list of stores coming to the development, we’ve had quite a few chime in on their suggestions on the stores that should be included in this development. There was some initial speculation in the recent past on whether this development was even a reality. Of course, with the buzz of Pier Park North, began the buzz of a new Walmart in Panama City Beach that is getting nearer to completion every day. Some commenters have confirmed that it is indeed going to be a Super Walmart.
What do you think of the new Walmart development and the development of Pier Park North?

Happy to see some new development in PCB after a few slow years.
I’m hoping this will lead to an economic boom for the area. Lots of new jobs. Maybe an HH Gregg or Frys Electronics? I’d prefer those way more than a best buy. Also a Wendy’s and a Sonic. OH! Also a Barnes and Noble or a new Border’s.
Do you have a contact name for Glimcher on leasing space at Pier Park North??
