New, bigger Walmart nearing end of construction in Rexburg

A new Walmart location in Rexburg is currently under construction that will double the size of Rexburg’s current Walmart, reported.

The location of the store will be on N 2nd E and Moody Rd., 2.1 miles north of the current Walmart in Rexburg.

The new building is more than 190,000 square feet, and will house double the employees, bringing more than 200 more jobs to the community.

The new store also will be closer for people living in St. Anthony, Driggs, and other places. It will include a full-service gas station and possibly a shuttle service.

There is no confirmation of an opening date, but it is expected to be up and running at the beginning of 2016.
