Walmart will announce plans Tuesday for a new store on the North Side.
The new Supercenter will be located at the northwest corner of Nacogdoches Road and Thousand Oaks.
A Walmart press release stated the 150,000-square-foot-store will bring 300 jobs to the area and is expected to open in fall 2013.
District 10 Councilman Carlton Soules will be on hand for Tuesday's announcement along with local philanthropist and businessman Gordon Hartman. Soules said the Walmart will give the area a much needed economic boost.
Walmart stated in the release the new store will include energy efficient technology and environmentally friendly features, to reduce energy and water use and minimize waste.
