We toured the not-yet-opened Walmart last week with Manager Tim Hammack. He showed us the many stocked shelves, stocked freezer sections and empty shelves of the produce and deli section - which will obviously be stocked just prior to opening on August 2nd.  He said the Beebe Walmart is about 50,000 s.f. smaller than the Walmart in Cabot - but plenty big enough at 150,000 s.f. Walmart will offer a tire-lube-battery area, pharmacy, sporting section,  bakery, deli, Subway, and hair salon. It will also have a good selection of craft materials and yarn. About 250 people are employed at the Beebe Walmart.

The people of Beebe are excited to have Walmart opening soon.
