According to Walmart, they've been accepting application since the first of March, and in the past three days more than 50 people have walked through those doors to ask for applications. And according to the store's manager Steve Hoag, the new market plans on hiring a total of 100 employees in the month of March.

"Flexible schedules is going to be crucial, experience in cashier and retail, is a plus," Hoad saiHoag

"Joplin most definitely needs it," Houts said.
 
And houts says she is crossing her fingers to be one of the new cashiers when this Neighborhood Market opens it's doors in May.  
Hoag says the weather is delaying the pouring of the concrete for the new market, but that the interior of the building is running ahead of schedule.
