Grand opening for new Walmart


Helping to cut the ribbon to celebrate the official opening of the new Whiskey Ridge Walmart at Hwy. 528 and Hwy. 9 were (from left) Marysville-Tulalip Chamber of Commerce board chair John Bell, Marysville City Councilmember Rob Toyer, Walmart store manager Sonia Smith, Marysville City Councilmembers Kamille Norton, Donna Wright and Steve Muller.

A new Walmart opened Wednesday, Sept. 18, after a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 7:30 a.m. The new store, located at 8713-64th St. NE, will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, with grocery, general merchandise and pharmacy services.

“We want to welcome Marysville’s newest corporate neighbor, Walmart,” said Mayor Jon Nehring. “This is a grand opening that has been anticipated for several years, but will surely have been worth the wait for the many patient shoppers in our community and around the region.”

The grand opening celebration also included presentations of $8,000 in grants from Walmart and the Walmart Foundation to local community groups. Recipients included Maryfest, the Marysville Boys & Girls Club, the Marysville Community Food Bank, the Marysville Police Department and Marysville Sunrise Rotary. The new store also hosted a day-long toy drive in partnership with the Salvation Army during its grand opening.

The new store employs approximately 300 full- and part-time associates.

What is the status of new Walmart in Monroe, Washington? Is it a done deal yet? When will we hear something about whether or not we can count on a groundbreaking ceremony? Thank you. Congrats to the new Marysville Store.
