NEWPORT NEWS - The first Walmart Neighborhood Market in Newport News opened for business Wednesday morning.

Company officials say they hired about 90 people for the 42,000 square-foot store at 11214 Jefferson Avenue.

Store hours are 6:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. daily.

Walmart says the store has energy-saving features, including LED lights in signs, freezer cases and the parking lot.  This technology uses about 50 percent less energy than traditional lighting, officials stated.
