The Wal-Mart on Memorial Boulevard, near the Murfreesboro Airport, is open. NewsRadio WGNS' Bryan Barrett was there...
The doors opened for the first time at 8am Wednesday. The new 185-thousand square foot Wal-Mart Supercenter is stocked with over 90-thousand items and groceries.
The first Wal-Mart opened in Murfreesboro in 1982, when taking over Big K, which was originally located where the Murfreesboro Athletic Club is today. That's then before building the Old Fort Parkway store. The Rutherford Boulevard location opened several years later.
Two more Wal-Mart Supercenters are planned for Rutherford County. One on South Church Street, just down from Veteran's Parkway, will open in early 2015. The other, announced several weeks ago for La Vergne, will open in about two-years.
