A new Walmart that's created some 250 jobs will open up in Gardnerville on Wednesday.
The town manager says the new 152,000 square foot store should help bring in more new business and is a significant investment in the community.
It's scheduled to open at 7:30am at 1511 Grant Avenue. The Douglas High School band will perform, and the Explorer Color Guard will present the colors.
Also as part of tomorrow's grand opening, $8,000 in grants will be given to area nonprofits from Walmart and the Walmart Foundation.
The Walmart will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
