The long-awaited grand opening of Spanish Fork’s new Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market took place on October 25. There were approximately one-hundred and fifty people in attendance at the ribbon cutting. The Maple Mountain High School band performed, and the National Anthem was sung by an in-house associate. The Market Manager, the Spanish Fork Mayor, and the store manager all shared a few words.
Adam Pelley, the store manager, presented grants to Tabitha’s Way, Maple Mountain High School’s Science Olympiad Team, and the Spanish Fork Public Library. This new Wal-Mart is pleased to be part of the community. They measure success by how the community members support them, and how they meet the needs of the community every day. They hope to positively impact the community. The Wal-Mart Corporation is committed to fighting hunger and feeding families, and this store hopes to continue that commitment.
There are ninety-five individuals employed at this particular store. The store offers a fuel station, a pharmacy, and much more. It is open to the public now, so be sure to stop by.
