In addition to the grants given as part of the grand opening, the new store will further Walmart’s pledge to fight hunger in America. As part of Walmart’s and the Walmart Foundation’s $2 billion commitment to fight hunger through 2015, Walmart stores in Texas donated approximately 43.7 million pounds of food, in fiscal year 2013, or the equivalent of 36.4 million meals. Additionally, Walmart and the Walmart Foundation gave more than $86.2 million in fiscal year 2013 in Texas alone.

The new store employs approximately 300 full- and part-time associates. Store manager James Boyer began his Walmart career in 1987 as an assistant manager in Round Rock.
“I am excited to bring this new store to Bryan. I think our community will love the low prices and one-stop shopping,” said Boyer. “I invited Bryan residents to come and celebrate our grand opening on March 12.”
A Big Family Welcome
Walmart is happy to be part of the Bryan community and is ready to celebrate with residents on Saturday, March 15. A Big Family Welcome will give customers a chance to meet Boyer and enjoy fun family activities such as face painting, cupcake decorating and free food samples while supplies last. Join the celebration from noon to 3 p.m.
