TYLER - Walmart is opening a Neighborhood Market in Tyler's Southpark Shopping Center in the 1800 block of East Southeast Loop 323.

Specifically, Walmart is looking to fill 95 jobs in the next two months, and they are offering a job to any qualified veteran who has been honorably discharged in the last 12 months.

Walmart is renovating a building that originally housed a Tom Thumb in the early 1980s. Albertson's conducted business in the building, but closed in early 2011.

Walmart bought the 54,980-sf building in July 2013. The extensive renovation includes a new roof, A/C and parking lot.

In December, the unemployment rate for all veterans nationwide was 5.5 percent — the lowest in five years. It is down from a national average of 6.7 percent in November 2013. Walmart, along with a handful of other companies, has made a concerted effort to hire these men and women who have served.

Vets can apply here.
