Walmart Supercenter opens after upgrades, hiring


The Walmart Supercenter near McCarran International Airport reopened Friday after a slight remodel added new self-checkout registers and gave the store a fresh look.

The store had remained open during the brief makeover, which also included setting up a new fabrics department and cutting table for crafts.

During the remodel, the superstore created 25 new full and part-time positions. It already employs approximately 350 full- and part-time associates.

The store celebrated its reopening with a presentation of $210,000 in grants from the Walmart Foundation and Walmart’s Nevada State Giving Program. The money was given to local community organizations, the Las Vegas Rescue Mission, Catholic Charities and the Nevada Youth Alliance, to bring free medical care and improve access to meals in Las Vegas.

The total cost of renovations was not disclosed.

The Walmart Supercenter is located at 6005 Eastern Ave., and is open 24 hours.
