Walmart has begun work to build a new Supercenter in North Highlands.

The new store on Watt Avenue, approved by Sacramento County Supervisors in 2012, will open by early 2015. Initial work includes demolition of the Cargo Largo store which closed in 2008 and has been vacant ever since. The new store will employ approximately 250 workers. 

A temporary hiring center will open near the store this fall to facilitate the hiring.

Positions will be available throughout the store, a mix of full- and part-time including department managers, customer service, personnel, maintenance, sales associates, stocking positions, cashiers and more.
