As we originally reported in September 2014, New Caney Texas is getting a Walmart Supercenter.
Construction of the new Walmart Supercenter at 20310 US 59 in New Caney (Southeast corner of FM 1485 & Highway 59) is well underway and is on track.
Anne Hatfield, with Walmart says “The store will be 182,000 square feet – which is the average size of any Walmart Supercenter. Construction began last fall and we are planning to begin serving customers this summer”.
The New Caney Walmart Supercenter will offer a full line of affordable, fresh produce and groceries, including organic and natural selections, in addition to local favorites. The store will also feature quality, value-priced general merchandise, including health & beauty items, baby & pet supplies, toys & games, electronics, sporting goods, apparel, household items and lawn and garden items. In addition, customers will find a garden center, a tire and lube express and a fuel station. Our full-service Walmart pharmacy will have a convenient drive-through and offer a full range of products and services including our popular $4 generic prescriptions. Walmart pharmacy team members can answer product and prescription questions and customers can ask about health and wellness solutions.
The New Caney Walmart Supercenter will also generate additional tax revenue for the community, stimulating new investment and economic growth and provide up to 300 additional jobs with the opportunity to build a career. Walmart’s pay and benefits typically meet or exceed what’s offered by local competitors. In Texas, their full-time average hourly wage is now up to $13.08. Full and part-time workers receive a cash bonus each quarter based on store performance, a 401(k) retirement plan, education and health benefits, and associates receive a discount card for 10 percent off regular priced general merchandise and fresh fruits and vegetables.
Hatfield also made it clear that “The New Caney location will not impact any other area Walmart stores. As communities grow, so does the need for additional access to affordable, healthy food and household merchandise”.
Walmart will announce a hiring center for interested job applicants in the coming months
