GREER, SC (FOX Carolina) -
South Carolina's first Walmart Neighborhood Market opened its doors in Greer on Wednesday.
According to Walmart, the Neighborhood Market store is a quarter of the size of a regular Walmart store and offers shoppers a faster, more convenient way to pick up groceries. The store carries a wide variety of fresh produce, has a bakery, deli and a pharmacy.
The deli will also feature a Grab-and-Go section with rotisserie chicken, fresh-baked pizza and standard deli sides. Additional areas include stationery, paper goods, pet products and hardware items. Customers can also print their own digital photos at the store.
"It's a way for folks that just want to come in and not have to deal with the crowds of the big box store or going through apparel, electronics and all those things," said Store Manager Kirsten Tucker. "It's not as much area to walk around in since we are only about 50,000 square feet here."
At this morning's grand opening ceremony, Greer Mayor Rick Danner commended the store for bringing more than 80 jobs to his city. Of the more than 80 people hired, Tucker says the majority of them are new hires, who live in the local area.
The new low-priced grocery store is located at 805 W. Wade Hampton Blvd., taking over space that used to house a Winn Dixie supermarket. The store will be open from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m., seven days a week.
