Walmart opens grocery store in Gateway (7)
The Springfield Walmart Neighborhood Market opened Wednesday at 2730 Gateway St., bringing a grocery store to a neighborhood previously considered a "food desert" due to a lack of food stores. The store will be open from 5 a.m. to 1 a.m., seven days a week. Walmart expects to employ about 95 people there.
