New Spokane Valley Walmart store will open on Oct. 17

Ready for a little more Walmart?

Wal-Mart Stores will open its second Spokane Valley location on Oct. 17. That's next Wednesday.

The new store, on East Sprague, is east west of the Costco store on Sprague.

It plans to have roughly 350 full- and part-time workers, according to a company news release.
The average wage for full-time hourly workers is $13 per hour,  the company said.

It will have 148,000 square feet of space and will be open 24 hours a day.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony at 7:30 a.m. will open the store, followed by checks handed out to a number of local groups, including Greater Spokane Meals on Wheels and Spokane Valley Partners.
