SOUTH FORT MYERS, Fla.- A new Wal-Mart will open its doors in south Fort Myers on Wednesday.

The store located at San Carlos Boulevard and Summerlin Boulevard will be open 24 hours, seven days a week. Workers say it has a full pharmacy, grocery store, vision center and free store pickup service. Officials hope it’ll bring more business to the beach.

“I believe we’ll have new customers that maybe didn’t come off the beach come here, and not have to go so far for vacation. They can stay there, get their groceries here,” said store manager Melissa Simmerman.

The new store is bringing 300 new jobs to the area.
