"Everything that has a now hiring sign, I've been applying to," Houts said.

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
ut while experience is preferred, Hoag says it isn't necessary. The 42,000 thousand square foot facility will feature a grocery store and drive through pharmacy, eventually adding a gas station in the back.
  
"We're excited to bring this new format to Joplin," Hoag said.

As for Houts, she too is excited to see the new Neighborhood Market come to town.

"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.
