BEAVERTON, Ore., Feb. 26, 2014 – Walmart will open a new Walmart Neighborhood Market Friday, March 7, after a brief ribbon-cutting ceremony at 7:30 a.m. The new store, approximately one-fourth the size of a Walmart Supercenter, is located at 9055 SW. Murray Blvd. and is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The new store will provide local customers with a new, convenient option for their grocery shopping needs, including fresh produce and pharmacy services.
“We welcome the new Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market,” said Beaverton Mayor Denny Doyle. “Our residents in the area will greatly benefit from another option for their grocery shopping and the added vitality a new business brings to the area. We are also excited that this new store will bring 95 new jobs to the community."
Smaller Store, More Convenience
The Walmart Neighborhood Market format offers quick and convenient shopping, with a full-grocery department, including organic and natural selections. The store features prepared food options, fresh baked breads, self-serve deli and a bakery. The Beaverton store is also tailored to the community, offering local favorites.
The pharmacy offers a full range of products and services. Pharmacy team members can answer product and prescription questions and customers can ask about health and wellness solutions.
The grand-opening celebration includes presentations of $8,000 in grants from Walmart to local community groups.
New Store, New Jobs
The new store employs up to 95 full- and part-time associates. The first Walmart Neighborhood Market opened in 1998, and today there are approximately 300 Walmart Neighborhood Market stores nationwide.
Store manager JD Fleming began his Walmart career in 2010 as a co-manager in Salem.
