BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

The old Walmart near the intersection of Popp's Ferry and Pass roads in Biloxi is about to see new life. The vacant property has been sold to an investor from Texas. 

Michael Sawyer with NAI Sawyer represented the buyer in the deal. He told WLOX News Now he couldn't name the investor or the sale price. But he said five tenants are already interested in moving to the shopping center, and some are stores not currently located on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. 

Sawyer said the building will be converted into several smaller retail spaces. He expects about three or four businesses to eventually locate there.
