New Walmart Opening In Grantsboro

A new Walmart is opening in Pamlico County Wednesday.

The Walmart is located at 11233 B NC-55 Highway in Grantsboro and will operate 24 hours, seven days a week.

Store features include a full line of groceries, fresh produce, fresh baked bread and desserts and Site-to-Store where shoppers can purchase items online and pick them up at the store.

The mega chain began hiring some of its staff back in April, bringing 150 full and part-time jobs to the community.

A ribbon cutting ceremony to welcome the store's opening will be 7:30 a.m. Wednesday.
