TYLER, TX (KLTV) -
Nearly 100 people started their new jobs in Tyler on Wednesday at the Walmart Neighborhood Market. The new store opened Wednesday morning in the Southpark retail center. The Market is about one third the size of a Walmart SuperCenter but still offers full grocery selections.
Some shoppers say the fresh produce is their favorite section.
"There's such a large variety," shopper Debbie Smith said. " This will keep customers coming back and they have great prices."
Wednesday's shoppers say they had a pleasant experience and this will become their new place to shop locally.
"I found all of the employees to be very friendly and helpful," Judy Shamburger said. "This new store is wonderful for our local economy and this store is right up there with the other Walmarts."
David Price has had a career with Walmart for the past 19 years and says he hopes to keep the customers coming to the new store.
"We're glad to be in the great city of Tyler. I've worked all over East Texas," Price said. "We were able to get some great people that were seeking employment through Work Force Solutions."
The Walmart Neighborhood Market is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It's located on south Loop 323 across from Hobby Lobby.
