Walmart Stores Inc. is looking to hire about 275 full- and part-time employees at its new Supercenter, along Binz-Engleman and Foster Road, which is expected to open this spring.
The Northeast project is one of the four that the Bentonville, Ark.-based company is currently developing in the Alamo City. The four new stores, which will open in phases throughout this year and 2014, will create approximately 1,200 new jobs. “We are excited to add a new Walmart to San Antonio and bring good jobs with great career opportunities to the area,” said Michael Weder, store manager for the Foster Road Supercenter, as quoted by the San Antonio Business Journal.
The other Walmart Supercenters set to open this year are located at:
- Leslie and Bandera roads, just northwest of San Antonio in Helotes;
- The intersection of Woodlawn and Bandera, on the West Side;
- Thousand Oaks Drive and Nacogdoches Road, on the Northeast Side.
In 2014, the company will open a new Supercenter at Wurzbach Parkway and Blanco Road.
Meanwhile, H.E. Butt Grocery Co. is building a new 96,000-square-foot store in the Rio Grande Valley community of Palmhurst. The company expects to open the store in late fall, according to The Monitor.
The H-E-B store will be located at the corner of Highway 107 and Three Mile Line, across the street from the Walmart store, which opened in 2005 and has been attracting other smaller retailers and hospitality businesses in the area.
