GREER, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The Greer Citizen reported Wednesday that Wal-Mart will open its first "Neighborhood Market" in South Carolina in a Greer strip mall.

The new store will be built in the old Winn-Dixie location in the Greer Plaza on Wade Hampton Blvd., according to the newspaper.

Wal-Mart's new store will combine the bulk-buying power the chain is known for with a setting that's more accessible than the company's traditional super stores. It will be one-fourth the size of a typical Wal-Mart, the newspaper reported.

There are 165 Neighborhood Markets across the country, carrying a full line of groceries and other items. Construction may begin within the next two months. Wal-Mart will hire 90 people about six months before the new store will open, all according to the newspaper.
