HANSON, Ky. (6/22/16) - The relocated Hanson Walmart Supercenter opened its doors early this morning.

The grand-opening was a packed-house celebration complete with Walmart management, Walmart associates, dignitaries, the Hopkins County-Regional Chamber of Commerce and lots of hometown folks.

Store Manager Terry Wilson greeted the crowd.

“These associates, my associates are the best, and they rock,” he said.

Wilson said management gives direction but the associates are the folks that make it happen.

Wilson thanked all the visiting management that helped make the opening a success, the dignitaries attending the grand opening and the community for its support.

He gave a special thanks to Assistant Manager Margaret Hayes, who Wilson said, “Is the glue that tied it all together.”

The nearly 187,000-square-foot store offers a full grocery, full-service deli, in-store bakery, full-service pharmacy with wellness services, full-service vision center and a fuel station employing up to 300 full- and part-time associates.

“We are excited to re-open and better serve our friends and neighbors in Hanson, just in time for the Independence Day holiday,” said Wilson.

The grand-opening included presentations of $5,000 in grants from Walmart to local community groups including Madisonville Police Department, Hanson Volunteer Firefighters, Hopkins County Sheriff's Office, Relay for Life and a pledge by Walmart and the Walmart Foundation to continue their commitment to fight hunger in Hanson and across the U.S. and to continue to support community needs and efforts.

The public is invited to “A Big Family Welcome” from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. Saturday, June 25 and noon – 4 p.m. Sunday, June 26 to give customers a chance to meet Wilson and enjoy fun family activities and free food samples while supplies last.

The Hanson Walmart Supercenter is located at 420 Factory Outlet Road, Hanson and open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
