LAYTON — RC Willey has begun steps to build a new, big-box store in Layton.

Kent Andersen, Layton’s deputy director for community and economic economic development, said RC Willey’s purchase of 9.5 acres closed Friday, July 8. 

“It’s an exciting development,” Andersen said.

Scott Hymas, the CEO of RC Willey, told the Standard-Examiner on Wednesday, July 13,  that they “bought some land.” He declined to provide any more specifics.

LOCATION EAST OF INTERSTATE 15

Andersen said the vacant property is just north of Antelope Drive, east of Interstate 15 by the Legend Hills Office Development. No schedule has been released for construction or an opening

The land sold to RC Willey was owned by Wayne Belleau and Gary Wright. Belleau runs Manor House Development, and Wright is with Teton Investments

“It’s a box-big user that may be 160,000 square feet,” Belleau said. He added that he was told the future Layton store may do $100 million a year in sales.

Belleau was unable to name RC Willey as the buyer. “We signed a non-disclosure agreement,” he said.

The Realtor handling the sale is Steve Bowler of Coldwell Banker Commercial Advisors, Layton Mayor Bob Stevenson said. Bowler declined to comment on the deal.

’A REGIONAL RETAILER'

“One of the benefits is (RC Willey) is going to be a regional retailer. They will draw people not only from Utah, but from Wyoming, Southern Idaho, and possibly Nevada,” Stevenson said. 

Andersen said the groundwork for the RC Willey has been in motion for some time. There have been presentations to entities, including the Davis School Board.

“Obviously, there’s a lot more steps to take place,” Stevenson said, such as preparing development agreements.

One of the steps will be presenting the RC Willey plan to the Layton City Council on Aug. 4, Anderson said.

“Another advantage of RC Willey is that people shopping there will also shop in other Layton stores,”  Stevenson said.

RC Willey has 15 other locations in Utah, Nevada, Idaho and California.
