Now that the Large Retailer Accountability Act discussion is resolved, Walmart will expedite plans for our first two stores in Washington, D.C. and get to the business of creating new career opportunities for local residents.
On Monday (9/23), we will officially open two hiring centers: one for our H street store (@ 900 2nd St. NE) and one for our Georgia Avenue location (@ 7818 Eastern Ave. NW). Both hiring centers will be open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Walmart is participating in the One City One Hire program, led by the Department of Employment Services.
Our goal is to have both D.C. stores open by the end of this year and additional details about our remaining locations can be found here.
We expect that these D.C. openings will include all the same elements we regularly see in other parts of the country: community stakeholders welcoming a new business; public officials celebrating economic development; customers saving money and; associates taking advantage of a job with real opportunity.
We can’t wait to get started.
