Walmart on Wednesday will open the doors of its new Sacramento store in the sprawling Delta Shores shopping complex along Interstate 5.

Grand-opening festivities are set for 7:30 a.m. at 8270 Delta Shores Circle.

The Arkansas-based retail giant has hired about 300 people to staff the new store.

Wednesday’s ribbon-cutting ceremony also includes eight local nonprofits being presented with donations totaling more than $200,000 from the Walmart Foundation.

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. oversees more than 11,500 stores under 63 banners in 28 countries, employing about 2.4 million worldwide.
