Walmart hosts grand opening on Victory Dr.

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - The newly relocated Walmart Supercenter held its grand opening on Wednesday.

The store is located on Victory Drive across the street from the O'Reilly Auto Parts.

It reopened Wednesday morning at 7:30 a.m. The store manager says there was a lot of work that went into getting the store ready for the grand opening.

Moving, transitioning, merchandise from one building to another one still keeping it running until the day before it was a lot in a six week span…I take my hat off to my team. I could not have done it without them- I can't say it enough," said Quacheryl Pugh, the store manager.

The Walmart is responsible for creating about 150 jobs in the community.
