Walmart plans to hire 85 additional employees to work at its Riverhead store, which is preparing to move to a new, larger location early next year, the company said.
The company is accepting applications for both full- and part-time positions between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. at its current location, 765 Old Country Rd.
Most of the new hires will begin work by mid-November to prepare the larger 145,000-square-foot store for its grand re-opening. The new store will be located at 1880 Old Country Rd. in Riverhead.
