HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – People in south Huntsville have seen construction move along at a quick pace over the last few months, and the new Walmart Neighborhood Market on Bailey Cove Road is on schedule to open in January.

The new market, at the corner of Weatherly Road, will also include a gas station.

Walmart will hire 95 full-time and part-time associates for the store. Applications are currently being accepted. You can apply in person Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 11220 Memorial Parkway SW, Suite J. Or, you can apply online at http://careers.walmart.com.

“We can’t wait to meet new applicants and provide the Huntsville community with a new, fresh grocery option,” said store manager Michael Croft.

The majority of workers will begin in December to help prepare the store for the grand opening.

Walmart will offer a job to any eligible U.S. veteran honorably discharged from active duty since the Veterans Welcome Home Commitment launched on Memorial Day 2013.  Since the launch, more than 100,000 veterans nationwide have found positions with Walmart.
