Wal-Mart opens in Spring


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.


  1. This is in Spring. The fire department is the Spring Fire Deparment–not Spring/Klein. If those folks out west are so enamored with calling their area “Klein”, let’s make sure we properly call Spring by its rightful name.
