Two new Walmart stores opened in Omaha Wednesday morning.
A Walmart Supercenter opened at North 50th Street and Ames Avenue and a Walmart Neighborhood Market opened near North 90th and Ohio streets. The new stores created about 385 jobs.
“The opening of this Walmart at 50th and Ames gives residents in the northeast community the opportunity to have the same shopping alternatives as other parts of the city,” said Omaha City Councilman Ben Gray. “In addition to jobs and the 32 plus million dollars of investment, this is a potential game changer for the north Omaha community.”
