LEXINGTON, N.C. — Regional retail store chain Magic Mart will open in the former Walmart space in Lexington Parkway Plaza shopping center, according to The Lexington Dispatch.

The center will open in September or October and bring 60 to 80 jobs to Lexington, according to company officials. Half of the positions will be part-time.

The 91,000 square foot building has been vacant since the Direct Furniture Factory Outlet relocated in 2011.

The store will feature women’s, children’s and men’s clothing and family shoes. The store will also carry food, health aids, small appliances and furniture.

Magic Mart has stores in West Virginia, Virginia, Kentucky and North Carolina. The Lexington facility will join a neighboring Magic Mart store in Salisbury.
