New Roads Wal-Mart to open in July

Wal-Mart has scheduled its new store in New Roads for a July opening and is looking to hire 200 full- and part-time employees.

The store, at 460 Hospital Road, will replace the existing store on False River Drive. That store will close the night before the new store opens, according to the company.

Wal-Mart will set up a hiring kiosk at the current location to interview job seekers for the new store, and can also take applications at http://careers.walmart.com.

The majority of new employees will begin work in June to help prepare the store for its grand opening, the company said.
