Retail giant Walmart Stores has unveiled California’s first Walmart Neighborhood Market at 21132 Beach Blvd in Huntington Beach on 27 July 2012.
Walmart's new shop features a self-serve deli, a wide variety of locally-grown fruits and vegetables, as well as meats, cheeses and prepared foods.
The retail outlet, which is the fourth to open on the West Coast, occupies a former Rite-Aid location on Beach Promenade that has been vacant for two years.
The new 31,000ft² store provides convenient location to shop for all groceries, including fresh produce.
Huntington Beach Mayor Don Hansen said, "With the approximately 65 jobs it is expected to create, the tax revenue it will generate, and the convenient access to fresh groceries it will provide, the Neighborhood Market is a welcome addition to our city."
Walmart Neighborhood Market, first opened in 1998, operates close to 200 stores across the country and plans to add about 80 more this fiscal year.
