On the heels of announcing that it will be closing more than 250 stores globally, Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market in Spring opened Feb. 17.
The 24/7 store, located at 24809 Aldine Westfield Road, provides nearly 100 new jobs to the Spring and Klein area.
“We look forward to offering our associates a great place to build a career,” store manager Jennifer Cain said in a news release.
In addition to offering produce, meat and pantry staples, the 41,000-square-foot store features a full, on-site pharmacy, fuel station and a free store pickup service.
With a new iPhone app, customers can refill prescriptions, create shopping lists and search for locations.
Wal-Mart’s grand opening celebration included presentations of $8,000 in grants to local community groups, including the Spring/Klein Fire Department and a commitment to fight hunger in Spring and across the U.S.
“We are proud to be a part of the Spring community,” Cain said.
