HIGH POINT, N.C. — Walmart has confirmed a new Neighborhood Market will open in High Point later this year, bringing 90 new jobs to High Point.

The 42,000 sq. ft store will open at the corner of Wendover Ave. and Penny Road near the Palladium Shopping Center.  The store is expected to open late summer or early fall, according to the company.

Walmart operates 200 Neighborhood Markets around the country, including locations in Charlotte and Cary.

Walmart is also building a new Neighborhood Market location in Greensboro on High Point Road. The store will be located inside the old Borders Bookstore location at 3605 High Point Road.

According to the company’s website, “Neighborhood Markets were designed in 1998 as a smaller-footprint option for communities in need of a pharmacy, affordable groceries and merchandise.”

“They are part of a more flexible approach we are taking to communities that includes both the large and small store format,” said William C. Wertz, Director of Communications East for Walmart.

The market will offer fresh produce, meat and dairy products, bakery and deli items, household supplies, health and beauty aids and a pharmacy.
