Walmart Reopening Store in West Little Rock

Posted: Updated:

Everything old is new again.  That's the case in West Little Rock, where a new Walmart Super Center is re-opening at a previous store location.

On Friday at 7:30 a.m. the new Super Center opens at 700 S. Bowman. 

Several years ago the Walmart at this location, considered a "division one" store, closed its door, to make way for a new store at Shackleford Crossing.  But many shoppers found it difficult to make it through the interstate construction to get to Shackleford, and they longed for the old location.

The new location on Bowman will feature everything that you'd find at a regular Walmart store, plus groceries, a bakery, a deli, a pharmacy, a vision center and a digital-photo processing center.

Maybe even more importantly in this economy, the store will employee more than 300 associates.
