The new store is one of Walmart’s grocery concepts, formerly called “Walmart Neighborhood Market.” The company recently announced a plan to drop the word “neighborhood” from its grocery store names.
The 34,999-square-foot store will employ about 90 full and part-time employees, and will be open 24 hours a day, 7 days per week.
A ribbon cutting to celebrate the opening of the new store was held at 7:30 a.m. this morning.
“The Chamber of Commerce is very excited about the opening of this new Walmart Market,” said Fayetteville Chamber of Commerce President/CEO Steve Clark. “Not only does this mean new jobs but also additional financial investment in Fayetteville, plus a new anchor destination for the expanding growth of our city along the Wedington Drive corridor.”
