SPRINGFIELD, Ore. – The new Walmart Neighborhood Market opened its doors Wednesday morning near Gateway Mall. It’s strictly a grocery store and about one fifth of the size of a Walmart Supercenter.
Shoppers we spoke with say they’re excited about the convenience the store brings.
“I live about a half a mile from here and I was hoping that the one on Green Acres would have the full grocery store and it never did and so when this opened up, I got really excited,” said shopper Elisabeth Zier.
Walmart Neighborhood Market hired 95 new employees to work at the store. It’s open seven days a week from 5 a.m. until 1 a.m.
