If residents of Hidalgo County's "Delta Area" wanted to go shopping at big box stores, they had to go to neighboring cities such as Weslaco, Alamo and Edinburg.
But those days will soon be over.
Retail giant WalMart has announced it's building a brand new store in Elsa right off Mile 16 North and Broadway Street.
The 180,000-square foot retail store will also include:
Full line of groceries Bakery Delicatessen Fozen Food Section Meat Counter Dairy Section Fresh Produce
The new store is expected to bring approximately 300 jobs to the area and is scheduled to open in Summer 2014.
