Walmart opening 4 new stores in Tri-County area

NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Walmart is getting bigger in the Tri-County, by going smaller.

The retail chain is opening four smaller stores called Walmart Neighborhood Markets.  Two of these stores will open this year in Goose Creek, and Ladson and Summerville will each get one new store.  

Neighborhood Market stores are about 40,000 square feet, which is a quarter of the size of a typical Walmart Supercenter in the United States.  They are similar to traditional grocery stores, designed for easy-in and easy-out access for shoppers. 

Cassandra Jamison, Career Center Manager for SC Works in North Charleston, says with the four new stores, the center has been contacted to host a major hiring event.  Hundreds of jobs are available.  The hiring event takes place on Friday from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. at SC Works Center, 1930 Hanahan Road in North Charleston.

You may contact the SC Works Center at 574-1800 if you have questions.  You will also find more information on Facebook by searching and liking Ann McGill Live 5 News.  Job information is posted to this site on a regular basis.
