Attention, Walmart shoppers: The Supercenter in Cottage Grove opens Wednesday morning.

The new store at 9300 East Point Douglas Road, north of Innovation Road, will mark its opening with a ribbon-cutting ceremony beginning at 7:15 a.m.


Doors will open to shoppers at 8 a.m. It will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The 177,000-square-foot store includes a grocery section, pharmacy, Subway restaurant, a Da Vi Nails salon, liquor store and other services. The retailer said it will employ roughly 300 full- and part-time workers.

"We are very excited for the grand opening of Cottage Grove's new Walmart," Mayor Myron Bailey said in a statement. "Walmart has great prices on groceries and merchandise for our residents, brings new quality jobs to the community and is a wonderful addition to our retail corridor."

The store was built on the site of the former Cottage View Drive-In. City officials predict it will anchor a retail development they've called the Shoppes at Cottage View.
