About the Store
A new Walmart store will open on the eastside of Highway 101, bringing new jobs and more affordable grocery options to the community. The store, 150,000 square-feet, will employ approximately 300 people. The Warrenton Walmart will offer affordable groceries, pharmacy and general merchandise all at everyday low prices.
“Communities around the country, including Clatsop County, continue to struggle with high unemployment rates. Walmart is pleased to bring about 300 new, good jobs to the Warrenton community,” said Matti Havener, Regional General Manager for Walmart in Oregon and Washington. “The new store will bring low prices on everyday household items and groceries to Warrenton, helping our local customers save money so they can live better.”
