Major retailer Walmart is set to open one of its Supercenters at a Pompano Beach site next week.

The 93,000-square-foot store officially opens at 5001 North Federal Highway on Wednesday, the Sun-Sentinel reported. Walmart is closing a 117,000-square-foot store four miles away at 300 West Copans Road in conjunction with the Supercenter opening, and snagged 41,000 square feet at Palmetto Gardens Plaza just last month.

Shoppers can buy groceries, pharmaceuticals, clothing and sporting goods at Walmart Supercenters. The Copans Road store did not offer fresh produce or meat.

Walmart plans to have 200 full and part-time employees working at the Supercenter, which stays open 24 hours a day. The company has made 85 new hires in advance of the relocation. [Sun Sentinal] – Eric Kalis
