EUFAULA - The countdown has begun for the Eufaula Walmart at 1252 South Eufaula Ave. to move to its new location at 3176 South Eufaula Ave.
With construction complete, the retailer will spend the next few weeks transforming the new building to feature the company's next generation of store design and customer experience. The newly relocated store plans to open to shoppers in March.
Originally opened in 1990, the store is relocating to provide a one-stop shopping destination where customers can find savings on a wide selection of merchandise including a full line of groceries.
"We are excited about the new products and services we will be able to offer our customers," said store manager Michael Reed. "We've been fortunate to have a loyal customer base and we look forward to providing an improved shopping experience."
After the move, the store plans to employ approximately 300 associates, including about 140 positions created by the relocation. Many of the newly hired associates are now reporting to work to help prepare the store for its grand opening.
