New Walmart Neighborhood Market opens today in Magna

Press Release

June 18, 2014

Magna – Walmart will open a new Walmart Neighborhood Market today after a brief ribbon-cutting ceremony at 7:30 a.m. The new store, approximately one-fifth the size of a Walmart Supercenter, is located at 3555 S. 8400 West. The new store employs up to 95 full- and part-time associates.

“This new store is an important piece of the blossoming economic vitality we are working to create in the Magna Township and will give residents more options to spend their money locally and support their community,” said Patrick Leary, township executive for Salt Lake County’s Office of Township Services.

The Magna store is the second of five new Neighborhood Markets planned for the Salt Lake City area. A new store opened in Provo in April, and a store in Pleasant Grove is scheduled to open later this summer. Stores in Riverton and Herriman are scheduled to open in early 2015. The five stores bring almost 500 news jobs to the area as well as grocery shopping convenience.

The grand opening celebration for the Magna store will include presentations of $4,500 in grants from Walmart and the Walmart Foundation to several local community groups.

In addition to the grants given as part of the grand opening, the new store will further Walmart’s pledge to fight hunger in America. As part of Walmart’s and the Walmart Foundation’s $2 billion commitment to fight hunger through 2015, Walmart stores in Utah donated approximately 9.2 million pounds of food in fiscal year 2014, or the equivalent of 7.6 million meals. Additionally, Walmart and the Walmart Foundation gave more than $17.3 million in fiscal year 2014 in Utah alone.
