The long-awaited Walmart store here opens Wednesday, beginning with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 7:30 a.m., a company spokeswoman said.

The store, at 3450 Glassford Hill Road, is about 148,000 square feet and will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Walmart added 300 jobs, both full- and part-time, with about 200 new local hires, for this new outlet, spokeswoman Rachel Wall said.

At a reception the evening before the grand opening, the store will present $8,000 in grants from Walmart and the Walmart Foundation to the CASA Senior Center, Humboldt Unified School District, New Horizons Disability Empowerment Center, Project Friday and Stepping Stones Agencies.

"As a business organization invested in the economic prosperity of our community, we are excited to have Walmart open a store in Prescott Valley," Prescott Valley Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Marnie Uhl said. "In addition to the new retail offerings, the jobs being created and the overall economic impact, Walmart has proven to be a community supporter."

Said store manager Kevin Ray, "I am looking forward to showing the residents of Prescott Valley the new store and all it has to offer our shoppers."

On Saturday, Jan. 18, an event called "A Big Family Welcome" will give customers a chance to meet Ray. From noon to 3 p.m., the store will host activities such as face-painting and cupcake decorating, and will offer free food samples.

Wall said there is no plan to close the Prescott Walmart on Highway 69.

"Our customers have been traveling significant distances to our other stores," she said. "This is an opportunity to provide a more convenient location."
