Wal-Mart is opening its latest area Neighborhood Market concept Nov. 16 in northeast Charlotte.

The new grocery store will be at 11530 North Tryon St., the retail giant said in a statement Friday.

The Neighborhood Market is Wal-Mart’s version of a traditional supermarket, offering an assortment of fresh and packaged groceries at low prices. The new 42,311 square-foot Charlotte store will also have a full pharmacy and free store pickup service for online orders.

The new store, Wal-Mart said, will employ 95 full-time and part-time employees. Those interested in employment can apply at a store’s hiring kiosk or online at Walmartcareers.com.

The new store will be open Monday through Sunday from 6 a.m. to midnight. The grand opening on Wednesday takes place at 7:15 a.m.

The Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market was the Charlotte-area’s No. 10 grocer last year by market share, according to Chain Store Guide, a sales-tracking firm.
