NORTH TAMPA — Construction of a Walmart Supercenter at the northwest corner of Nebraska and Bearss avenues is on schedule and the store is expected to open in late March, a company spokeswoman said.

The 147,848-square-foot store will include a grocery, pharmacy with a drive-thru window and an attached 8,675-square-foot “mini garden center.”

The store will employ 250 to 300 workers, most of them full time. The 19.5-acre property includes a 1.88-acre out-parcel for an unspecified commercial development. The Walmart parking lot will accommodate 627 vehicles.
