BLUFFTON, SC (WTOC) -

Several Bluffton residents are voicing their concerns as construction on a new Wal-Mart and Sam's Club moves forward.

It's at the corner of Bluffton and Fording Island roads.

Their main issue is that they can see the gray wall and the top of the building from their front yard.

A county official says most of the complaints come from those living in the Crescent neighborhood.

"I think people need to be patient and allow time to go forward and see if we can work with both the neighbors and Wal-Mart and make sure that vegetation is there so that if they see it while they're waiting at the light. They're not too disturbed over that minute and a half,” said Beaufort County Administrator Gary Kubic.

Kubic adds that there are requirements in the agreement to landscape the area. 

The two stores are set to open next year.
