New Walmart Hires 300, 25 Military Veterans

Posted: Updated:
Augusta, GA - The new Walmart on Wrightsboro Road opened bright and early Wednesday morning with a ribbon cutting.

Mayor Deke Copenhaver and several local officials were in attendance.

The Chamber of Commerce says they are excited for the economic impact of the store, located on Wrightsboro Road and North Leg Road.

It has already created about 300 jobs -- and about 10 percent of the store staff is made up of military veterans.

Our Julie Parise met one veteran who says that before Walmart hired her, she was having trouble finding a job. Check out the video for her story.
