WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - A new Wal-Mart store opened Wednesday. But, the store isn't just giving people a place to buy groceries, it's giving more than 300 people a place to work.
The new Wal-Mart is on 45th Street near Military Trail in West Palm Beach. It's being dubbed a "greener" Wal-Mart. It has concrete flooring made with recycled materials and solar lighting that reduces energy-use by 75 percent.
The best part, though, the company hired nearly 350 people to help run the store.
