Walmart opens new store in Visalia

Thursday, May 17, 2012

A new Walmart opened its doors at a location on Mooney Boulevard near Caldwell Avenue in Visalia at the old Costco shopping center.

This is the city's second Walmart store. It features all the regular merchandise plus a full grocery line, deli, and a garden department. Customers said they're glad to see Walmart fill the shopping center -- which has been without an anchor tenant for several years.

Rose Huereta said, "It's awesome I think you know because this place was empty for the longest time and I'm glad they decided to open something over here. I'm very glad that they did that."

Walmart hired 300 local employees for the new store.
