HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. — The first Walmart Neighborhood Market in California opened here Friday.
It is only the fourth Neighborhood Market on the West Coast. The 31,000-square-foot store is located in a former Rite-Aid drug store that has been vacant for two years.

"The [store] will help reenergize a shopping center deflated by years-long vacancies and bring increased visibility to surrounding businesses, and it will bring added convenience for area residents and beach-going tourists," said Huntington Beach Mayor Don Hansen.
