Sioux Falls latest Walmart store is preparing to open in just a few weeks.
The 186,000 square foot store on 60th Street North by University Center will open in the middle of August. The shelves are being stocked in the Walmart Supercenter and the finishing touches are underway.
The store will have some "green," elements, including energy-saving, LED lighting and even the material used for the floor.
"Instead of the traditional tiles you see in a lot of stores, our poured floors are made out of a lot of recycled materials. And the maintenance on them is a lot easier. There are not as many chemicals and waxes used to keep them looking good," Store manager Shawn Shubert said.
Walmart will continue to hire more employees as it approaches its grand opening. Walmart has not released a specific opening date yet.
