Walmart Discount City announced plans to open its new home in Highland Park Shopping Village on Tuesday morning, Feb. 4. The specials featured at the time were to run throughout the week.
The store contained 34,000 square feet of space, divided into 29 departments. Parking space would accommodate hundreds of cars.
In addition to a much wider assortment of merchandise for the current departments there was to be these new departments: a complete automotive center, radio and television, quality jewelry, health and beauty aids and a "baby department." This included furniture for the nursery as well as all other baby needs. Maternity closthes would also be an added line. The same quality lines of school supplies, records, housewares, gifts, lawnmowers, lawn furniture and, of course, a very large selection of clothing for men, women and children, which was always in stock.
There would be six huge truck loads of merchandise outside in the parking area. The management planned all displays inside and the truck load sales outside for the convenience of the customer.

Kelly Wilmoth drilled five three-point field goals in the first half and finished with 23 points, helping the Siloam Springs Lady Panthers to a 58-47 win over Alma.
With Wilmoth hot from the outside and Tracy Trembly scoring effectively inside, the Lady Airedales staged a mild second-half rally, cutting the lead to nine at one point.
But Siloam Springs went to a spread offense, forcing Alma to foul and iced the game late with free throws.
Wilmoth's 23 points led all scorers. Trembly and Jami West added 10 points apiece for the 14-8 Lady Panthers.
The Panthers meanwhile, suffered another tough loss -- their fourth in a row -- falling to the Airedales 44-41 in the closing moments.
David Crider led all Panther scorers with 18 points and Aaron Harrison added 12, as Siloam Springs fell to 15-8.

The state's top volleyball player was in the running for a national award.
Siloam Springs junior setter Hannah Allison, who was named the Arkansas Gatorade Player of the Year after helping her team win its fifth straight Class 5A state title, was one of 25 finalists for the PrepVolleyball.com National Junior of the Year Award.
Allison was named the state tournament's Most Valuable Player after recording 27 assists, 16 digs and 30 kills as the Lady Panthers beat rival Greenwood in November.
Siloam Springs finished the year with a 32-6 overall record and became the state's first volleyball team to win five consecutive titles.
Allison, a 5-foot-10 standout, had 337 assists and 211 kills as a junior and was named to the 5A All-State team for the third year in a row.
PrepVolleyball.com, which tracks club and high school volleyball across the country, was to award National Senior of the Year, National Sophomore of the Year, National Freshman of the Year and the Andi Collins Senior Setter of the Year awards.
Allison was the only Arkansan in the running for any of those awards.
