Walmart Opens First Georgia Neighborhood Market

From ajc
The Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market at 3059 Lawrenceville Highway in Lawrenceville will be open 24 hours, and will open its doors at 7:45 a.m. The company has at least two other such stores in the works in metro Atlanta, and will open between 80 and 100 of the grocery stores nationwide this year.
The stores have on average 29,000 items and are less than a quarter of a Supercenter's size. This store is opening in a former Publix space. It will have a self-serve deli, produce, prepared and frozen foods, a pharmacy and an organic section.
Wal-Mart is opening eight Neighborhood Markets nationwide this month, and has a total of about 200 such stores. When the grocery stores were first announced in metro Atlanta last year, executives described them as part of a fill-in strategy, to capture small grocery trips that wouldn't ordinarily go to Wal-Mart.
The store will employ 80 people.
