An exact opening date has not been announced for the new store, to open on Second Street in the Town and Country Village Shopping Center. Store manager John Defiori said in a statement that the retailer will be hiring full- and part-time workers.

Arkansas-based Wal-Mart has opened two local locations of the small-format grocery store and pharmacy – in San Diego and La Mesa – and will soon open stores in Escondido and Oceanside.
