Wrightsboro Road Walmart opens March 26

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) - The new Walmart on Wrightsboro Road is set to open March 26 after a brief ribbon-cutting ceremony at 7:30 a.m.

The store, located at the corner of Wrightsboro and North Leg roads, will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

About 300 full- and part-time associates are employed at the new store, Manager Rodney Baker said.

"The associates have been working to stock the store and we are now ready to greet shoppers on opening day," Baker said.

The store will also hold a "Big Family Welcome" on March 29, the Saturday after it opens. The celebration will be from noon to 3 p.m. and will give customers a chance to meet Baker and enjoy family activities, such as face painting, cupcake decorating and free food samples.
