The only Wal-Mart Super Store in Jackson County is located in Eagle Point and on Sept. 19 it will open its doors.
But in order to fill the nearly 200,000 sq. ft. facility, some 100 associates began working on Aug. 13 and will probably be working right up to the moment it opens.
Walk in the spacious entry way and to the left is a deli and bakery and to the right is Subway (the second Eagle Point Subway and with the same ownership.) From front to back on left hand side are racks for grocery items encased in shining silver and black shelving. Fresh seafood will be among the many products.
There will be a total of 45 check out stands, including 23 across the
front of the main store. The tire store and garden store are near the
Hannon Road side with their own entrance.
Some of the features will be a beauty salon, optical department and pharmacy.
Trucks started arriving with supplies on Aug. 22.
