Pottstown Walmart Expansion needs more Workers

The Pottstown Walmart is getting bigger, and management is seeking new employees to work for the expanded store.

Richard Alphonso, manager of the 233 Shoemaker Road Walmart, located in Pottstown Center at Route 100 and Shoemaker Road, said the store is hiring approximately 50 additional associates to staff the store when its expansion into a Supercenter is complete this fall. He said it's possible future job opportunities may arise as well.
"We are excited to expand this Walmart in Pottstown and bring good jobs with career opportunities to the area," Alphonso said in a prepared statement.

The construction, which has been ongoing since the beginning of the year, will grow the store from 121,000 square feet to 178,000 square feet, according to Alphonso. The expanded store will have a deli, produce, meat, bakery, frozen and dairy section as well as expanded electronics and garden center, he said.
Though no set date has been given as to when the construction on the store will be complete, Alphonso said "fall" will be the time for a planned grand re-opening.
The store has set up a job application kiosk to facilitate the filling of the new positions, which include both full- and part-time opportunities. Alphonso said associates are needed to work in all areas of the new store, including supervisory positions.
