Big new retail center for Turtle Creek

News 7 has learned that another major shopping center may be coming to West Hattiesburg.

Public hearings will be held in both Lamar County and Hattiesburg on Monday to consider a tax increment financing plan for a large commercial development off Highway 98, just behind Domino's and Mazzio's Pizza.

If the plan goes through, the property would include an 89,000-square-foot retail store, and 30,000 square feet for other retail shopping sites.

It is proposed that the shopping center would be called Turtle Creek Commons, and it would be sandwiched between Turtle Creek Mall and Turtle Creek Crossing.
