Walmart will open a new 24-hour Neighborhood Market at 1355 Knox Abbott Dr. in Cayce Wednesday, just in time for the busy Fourth of July grocery shopping weekend.
The 41,000-square-foot store will have 95 employees and will feature a full-service pharmacy, fuel station and free store pickup service.
While the store opens Wednesday, store manager Katrina Nichols will welcome customers Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Sunday from noon to four p.m. for “A Big Family Welcome” celebration where customers can meet Nichols, participate in family activities and sample free food.
“This will bring 95 new jobs to our city and (be) a welcome addition,” said Cayce Mayor Elise Partin. “Given the market research and feedback we have heard from our citizens, we know another great grocery store is what the people of Cayce are looking for.”
Walmart Neighborhood Market is Walmart’s chain of smaller-scale grocery stores with sizes varying from 28,000 to 66,000 square feet with an average size of 42,000 square feet.
