0113 Walmart construction Lorna Road
Construction has begun for the new Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market on Lorna Road.
A new Walmart Neighborhood Market will be opening this August in Hoover. A hiring center has opened in preparation of the new store, which is expected to bring up to 95 jobs to the community.
Walmart Neighborhood Markets provide fresh meat, produce, a pharmacy and other grocery items.
The hiring center has opened at the Pelham Walmart at 2181 Pelham Parkway. Applications will be accepted from 8 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Interested applicants may also apply online at careers.walmart.com.
According to store manager Mike Chandler, the store will be hiring both full- and part-time associates. The majority of these will begin work in July to help prepare the store for its grand opening.
“We are excited to add a new Walmart Neighborhood Market to Hoover and bring good jobs with great career opportunities to the area,” Chandler said.
