Wal-Mart Stores Inc. opened its latest location of its small-format Walmart Neighborhood Market grocery store Oct. 17 in La Mesa. A company statement said the store at 8820 Grossmont Blvd. will employ 65 and revitalize a previously empty 39,000-square-foot building.

The retailer’s Neighborhood Market stores carry a full line of groceries, with departments selling produce, meats, baked goods and deli foods.

Wal-Mart has announced a spring 2013 opening for another Neighborhood Market, to be located at 2121 Imperial Ave. in San Diego’s Sherman Heights neighborhood.
