The Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market off Farrow Parkway in Myrtle Beach opened Friday, and more of the Wal-Mart mini-markets are in the works for the Myrtle Beach area.
The 46,000-square-foot store at 3650 Walton Drive opened after a ribbon cutting at 7:30 a.m. It will be open 24 hours a day, seven days week.
Neighborhood Markets are smaller than the company’s traditional big box stores and are designed for convenience. The markets include a pharmacy, deli items, fresh produce and a bakery. The stores also carry health and beauty products as well as household supplies.
This is the third Neighborhood Market along the Grand Strand, though more are on the way. Construction continues on a Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market off 38th Avenue North in Myrtle Beach; Wal-Mart officials said they do not have an opening date for that location.
Another Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market is in the works for 1701 S. Kings Highway in Myrtle Beach; the city has approved the plan but construction hasn’t started.
Other Neighborhood Markets along the Grand Strand are near Surfside Beach off U.S. 17 Business across from Ocean Lakes Family Campground and in Murrells Inlet off Tournament Boulevard.
