In June 2010, Walmart announced the “Chicago Community Investment Partnership,” a five-year plan to open several dozen stores, create approximately 10,000 jobs and 2,000 unionized construction jobs, generate more than $500 million in sales and property taxes and develop charitable partnerships worth $20 million.
“When I met with Walmart last year, I encouraged them to take an approach that addressed the needs of the urban shopper if they truly wanted to make a difference in our underserved neighborhoods,” said Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley. “Today, it appears that Walmart has done just that by creating smaller urban store formats that will better serve our communities.”
Jobs at some of these stores won’t be available for a year or two, but to find out about specific openings right now, visit the Walmart Careers site.
