Today is the grand opening of the new Walmart grocery store in La Mesa. This store is only the second one to open in California, with the first one opening in Huntington Beach over the summer.
Not as large as the Walmart super center’s, this store is much smaller.
“The Walmart Neighborhood Market is about a third to fourth the size of a Walmart super center,” said Delia Garcia, Walmart spokesperson.
This store will focus on groceries only and you will not find toasters or televisions here.
Located in the old Circuit City location on Grossmont Blvd. it will bring about 60 jobs to the area.
